Grasp the Nettle is the story of the eco village by Kew Bridge.
I (Ruk) spent many happy days and evenings at the Eco Village situated by Kew Bridge, enjoying good company, food and music.
It featured sustainability, blooming flowers and vegetables, various art and building projects. Recycling, re-use and reduce were also an ethos and the chance to chill out without any who, what, why and where.
One felt in an oasis – away from the noise and hubbub of the commercial world.
Good old back to basic living.
Its closure was a great loss to me. The site has now been enveloped by a multi-storey block of flats and the ground floor houses a Sainsbury.
