Happy New Year. Did your resolutions for 2014 include eating healthier and more local food, learning to garden or knit, saving energy (and fuel bills), or getting more involved in our local community? If so (and even if not) then please come along to our Transition projects for 2014 open meeting where you can keep all of those resolutions and maybe make a few more.
This is your chance to meet others who are trying to make a difference locally and globally and transition to a more sustainable and gentler way of living. It’s also an opportunity to find out what projects we’re already working on, some new ones we’re currently planning, and to propose anything you would like to see happen this year.
Over the last two years we have worked on food growing projects at Highgate Newtown Community Centre and with Brookfield primary school; run skill-sharing workshops in crafts, food growing, foraging; started a monthly knitting and sewing group; and run a home energy saving project. We have also organised many events – seed swaps, give & takes, film nights, talks, farmers market stalls.
This year we are planning to continue the work we have started and launch two new projects. The first is a Veg Box scheme for Dartmouth Park – an extension of the successful scheme already started by Transition Kentish Town. The second will be a wildflower meadow to provide a habitat for hungry local bees.
We would love to see more people get involved in these projects and be part of proposing more, so we hope to see you there. Children are very welcome.
