COMMUNE #2 CITY:
LOCATION: The Old Baths, Hackney Wick, London, UK
DATE: 29th September
GROW HEATHROW Community formed as protest to the Heathrow 3rd runway & part of the Transition movement, came to share insights on their sustainable solutions living off-grid. Visitors are welcome all year round to learn and support the various calls to action that arise in their fight for air quality and land justice. “For many, Goldberg included, Grow Heathrow is kind of a makeshift utopia. Community and togetherness is prioritized. There is no hierarchy and progress is made through consensus decision-making. Food is not wasted; instead, the community relies on homegrown vegetables, foraging, salvaging for discarded food, and donations from local food markets and warehouses. It exists entirely off-grid, with energy sourced from wind turbines and solar panels and structures built using sustainable methods.”
