FOOD PROJECTS - Breaking New Ground - 15 & 16 November

October has been a busy month for the food projects. The land at Postwick has been subsoiled and mucked, and the same was due to happen at the Hewett during half-term week. We've bought the flour mill, which is on its way from Austria. The school market garden got a good writeup in the Evening News and was mentioned on Radio Norfolk (25 October).

The shadow Board met twice, and we hope that the Financial Services Authority will approve Norwich Community Agriculture (the new co-op) by Christmas. The growing and environment group met three times, including a visit to the Postwick site (pictured), and is figuring out the details of how to make the site an exemplar of how biodiversity and organic methods can coexist with commercial viability.

And NCA has started its own blog at http://norwichcommunityag.blogspot.com/. Many of TN's fabulous members are pouring their energy, expertise and creativity into these projects, so they're bound to be a big success. (Tully Wakeman)

The group looking at how the NCA will be 'marketed' (for want of a better word) are meeting on 1st November at 19.30 at Take 5. The Board is meeting at The Guild on 15 November. The Growing and Environment group is meeting on 16 November upstairs at Take 5 at 19.30. There will also be a key Visioning Session on 24 November at the Baptist Church, Duke St (RM 5) at 19:30. Don't miss this unique opportunity to shape the future of the NCA.

Please contact Tully if you want to know more at tully@transitionnorwich.org or just turn up on the day.
