Transforming a Tube station

The plans for London’s Garden Bridge may have been jettisoned, but passengers on the northern section of the Jubilee line can enjoy some greenery on their commute - plant-loving volunteers have turned Willesden Green tube station into a mini-oasis.
The platforms are bedecked with flowering planters. Even a wheelbarrow has been pressed into service.
Willesden artist Kevin Vincenzo Keating has created a Wishbone sculpture for one of the flower beds, and against all odds, the espaliered apple tree seems to be thriving.
On Sunday, August 20, from 4pm to 5.30 pm, there will be free guided tours of the platforms by some of those involved in the transformation, plus a chance to buy home-made cakes and maybe some little gifts. All proceeds will go to the continued greening of the area.
