A summer of fresh vegetables.

Attended our winter veggie patch workshop? Then you’ll be keen to know what to plant now that it’s coming up to a Perth summer. Come along to our second last workshop for 2015 and learn tips for veggie success.

The workshop will be run by members of Glen Forrest Community Garden, meeting since 2008 to offer everyone the opportunity to grow whatever they like in a fun, permaculture inspired way. You may even join the Community Gardeners every Sunday morning after our visit!

Kids’ Club

Kids are welcome – we’ll have some hands-on children’s activities happening in conjunction with the workshop if your child wishes to play, so please make sure they are wearing gardening clothes. You may like to bring little gloves too.

We like to share. Please bring:

    • Something from your garden/kitchen for the sharing table (eg. seedlings, fruit, herbs, eggs etc)
    • Something to share for afternoon tea.

Welcome our sister group – Transition Bay St. Margarets, Canada

Each Transition Initiative is a local group dealing with resilience issues in their area, but the Transition Movement as a whole is world-wide in scope. As an illustration of this wide scope,  Transition Town Guildford has informally twinned with a sister-transition group: Transition Bay St. Margarets, located near Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Our two transition initiatives are very nearly on the opposite sides of the earth from each other!

The Family of one of our steering group are part of the steering group of Transition Bay St. Margarets and joined us for our Christmas celebration at the end of the year. Check out the inspiring projects below, and take a look at what our sister group is doing on the other side of the earth (http://www.transitionbay.ca/). It helps us all to appreciate that while the details may be different, the overall goals are remarkably similar. Visit your sister often and say hello!
