Some great creativity from an unexpected source – TFL.
Tube workers have created an Underground allotment to supply staff with fresh fruit and vegetables – which someone (inevitably in their PR department) said was designed to bring “biodiversity to the Northern line”.
Established by the station supervisor at Brent Cross, Ian Hutchings, the allotment supplies TFL employees with everything from runner beans to leeks, parsnips, pumpkins and blueberries. I am pretty convinced they are making it sound a LOT better than it is but I still love the concept. Breaking news is that they decided to grow pumpkins so staff can give them to their children at Halloween.
Please note that the blond pictured above is not the station Supervisor at Brent Cross, or called Ian Hutchings.
