Learning to grow our own food is an important aspect in creating a sustainable future. This course is for all of you who have an interest in growing your own food, but simply lack the knowhow. You don't need to have your own plot or garden, just a willingness to learn and take part! For just £20 to cover costs, you get 8 lessons from experienced growers and a share of the produce that you will have helped to grow! Please book early to avoid disappointment. For more information and how to book please see https://www.transitioncambridge.org/gyo
Until recently this patch of land in Trumpington had lain deserted and full of debris. Many of you responded to our previous request for help, and the area has already begun to transform. The end result will be an orchard of hazelnut trees, together with an area for bee keeping. If you are interested in helping with this rewarding project, or if you have any questions, please contact Ceri or Dave J
On Sunday 22 February, at 7pm, Mark and Mary will be watching and discussing the short movie Money As Debt http://www.moneyasdebt.net/ and its implications for the recession and for Transition; they invite you to join them at 2A Brakcyn Road, CB1 3PL. Let Mark know if you're planning to come. There is space for about a dozen other visitors. Tea offered, biscuits welcomed.
The Transition Cafe is open on alternate Thursdays. It is an opportunity to meet members of Transition Cambridge and like-minded people. On this particular evening the Transition Cambridge Education Group will also be holding a meeting there. As their name suggests, their focus is on the role of education as part of the transition movement. You are invited to sit in on their meeting, to get a better idea of the the group and maybe join.
Cambridge is a big place, and we need your help to spread the word about peak oil, climate change and Transition Cambridge to as many people as possible. Essentially this means helping to run stalls in town and at events such as festivals, and perhaps helping to host events such as film showings. Please contact Jono if you think you may be interested in any of the above. Training is most certainly available if required, and registering your interest does not put you under any obligation.
An opportunity to plant trees with your family & friends to help create a woodland better for wildlife. This will be at Byron's Pool in Cambridge. Tools are provided but please wear old warm clothes and stout footwear. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Refreshments will be provided.
