So last week I was the first teapig to get stuck in to some gardening with the guys from Cultivate London!

They’re based on Brentford High Street (just down the road from the teapigs office) and it was a real treat to discover the plot of land they’re currently working on just behind the bustling main road. I got the opportunity to plant lots of young rocket shoots and clear a patch of cabbages that had sadly withered in the sun to make way for more rocket. I struggle to keep a pot of basil alive so it was very inspiring to listen to the Cultivate team talk so passionately about the work they do. I came back to the office with a satisfying amount of dirt on my knees and under my fingernails, and Cultivate very kindly gave me three courgettes to take home too. I’ll definitely be dropping by at some point to see if the shoots I planted flourish into big peppery rocket leaves!
