Keep It In The Ground
Transition Town Lewes are planning a seventh birthday party with a difference on Thursday 12 June. We'll be partying with the founder of the Transition movement, Rob Hopkins, at Zu Studios from 6pm until late, which is great news. But we're also planning to invite anyone or any group who have worked on sustainability, relocalisation and community building in Lewes over the last seven years. We want to celebrate all the good things going on in Lewes and the fact that TTL is just one of many groups working on turning Lewes into a more sustainable, relocalised, fairer town. So please put Thursday 12 June at Zu Studios in your diaries.
We're also looking for people who'd like to help with making it happen. Specifically we're looking for someone to manage the food and drink aspect of the evening. And we're keen to hear who you think we should invite to the party. Please get in touch
Grow Your Own Food - March
|You can plant almost anything in March, or you could, if the ground was not so depressingly wet...
Assuming you have washed all your pots, sharpened your tools, disinfected the greenhouse and serviced your mower (no, nor have I), perhaps this might be a good time to plan some new project. And wouldn't a decent herb garden be a good one? More...
Transition Town Lewes (TTL) is a network of Lewes people. We’re working on local solutions in response to the global problems of climate change, economic change and the end of cheap energy and other resources.
Please get in touch if you would like to meet some of the people involved in project work for TTL.
And don't forget to subscribe to the TTL monthly newsletter to keep up to date with our news and events.
Transition is about the creation of resilient communities. It's not about campaigning but designing. It's about putting in place systems that will help us to deal with the big changes that are on the way. Those changes will be in three main areas: energy, the economy and the environment.
