6. Grow Heathrow

A pedal powered washing machine, a wind turbine, a make-shift loo and a mud hut are just a few of the oddities that make up Grow Heathrow, a green space occupied by squatters in protest of a third runaway at London’s Heathrow Airport. This sprawling, colourful and quirky community space is made up an array of makeshift dwellings that are host to a range of activities from food growing and environmental education classes to camp fires and music performances.
