We're grassroots Heathrow residents proving that communities less dependent on oil can be more resilient, stronger and happier. We take direct action on climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy by transitioning to a post-oil, community-led future for the Heathrow villages.

Grow Heathrow was in Uxbridge County Court last week.

This is a new and separate case from the one from recent years, concerning the patch of land beyond the main greenhouses where we have built our homes and community straw bale house.

The judge ordered the case to be postponed, recognising that our human right to a home and peaceful family life needs to be considered properly.

However, the land at the front of the site where we do most of our growing, working and cooking is still living under the threat of baliffs turning up at any time.

So, if we want home grown sprouts for our 5th Grow Heathrow Christmas dinner we need the ongoing support of the local community and the wider environmental movement to protect our beautiful off grid community.

There is no time like the present to visit if you want to learn how to work within the legal system to hold space that operates outside the political system.The resistance is fertile but there is much physical and academic work to do if we are to make it grow. So please do come down to site and donnate your spare time to this greener vision of the future!
