Celebrating Cropshare's planting spectacular!

We regularly advertise Cambridge Cropshare events in our newsletter. During last month's planting day nearly 14000 plants were sewn in a single day, an amazing achievement! With a large dose of sun, some hard work and plenty of tea it was a successful day.

The next farm days are coming up throughout July and August: you can find details here. If you want to get involved in the future, head on over to the Cambridge Cropshare website and fill in their sign-up sheet. Or follow them on twitter

July 26th: Transition Turns Seven

Midsummer Common Community Orchard, Sunday 26/07/2015

Celebrate Transition Cambridge's seventh birthday with us! Bring kids, food, drink and clothes for all occasions (who know's what the weather will be like?!)

Special thanks to the Friends of Midsummer Common for creating this space and allowing us to have our picnic there!

Summer Break in August

Transition Cambridge usually takes August off, so there will be very few events/meetings and no newsletters during this time. But do keep an eye on the cropshare website for farm days and check back here as we release new events for our return in September!

Orchard Park Wildlife Wanderings, 15th August

Following the summer safari in July, we have another wildlife wandering on the horizon. Join us on Saturday 15th August from 09.00 to explore and investigate the plants and animals that live around the area. We even hope to spot some lizards basking!

We'll be meeting by the Travelodge on Chieftain Way.

Make a donation!

As many of you know, we run on a shoe-string budget, and we generally find that we can do a lot with very little money at all. However, there are some basic costs we have to meet each year, and we'd be very grateful for your donations. We have set up a local giving account as an easy way to donate, or you can donate via bank transfer or cheque (details here). Donating via Local Giving means that your donation can also have Gift Aid applied. Thank you!

Volunteer vacancies

We have a couple of new opportunities over here on our volunteering page. If you want to get involved, have a volunteer opportunity you want to advertise or have heard about and want to share with the community, simply e-mail us

August: Summer break

Transition Cambridge usually takes August off, so there will be very few events/meetings and no newsletters during this time. However CropShare may still have some farm days - check their web-page for updates - and the Growing Spaces project will continue to harvest and maintain spaces - sign up to their mailing-list for updates. Over the summer you can still check our website for news and events as we will try to keep these web-pages up-to-date.

Join Transition's community farming project, CropShare, to experience life as a real organic farmer for a day.

See our blog to get a flavour of what workdays are like. It will be good healthy fun, a great chance to see our local countryside, and how food is grown on a large scale. Fill in this form if you would like to take part, and we'll also help you arrange travel to the farm. Everyone is very welcome! Family friendly.
