TTL Seventh Birthday Party
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.

A few things you should know about slugs
More food growing tips from Jon...
|We never did get a winter, did we? Autumn went on forever, and now spring seems to be here. Mild, wet and windy weather has brought some beneficial effects for the gardener; however, it probably means that we will have a bumper crop of slugs.|
Now, to my mind, slugs are attractive little creatures, with a rather interesting love life... more
