Welcome to our all systems-go November edition. We're heading towards winter but our wood fires are burning bright and the city trees fiery with colour. The Food and Farming projects at Postwick and the Hewett School are breaking new ground as work begins in our two market gardens. As we enter the new growing year, food and plants are definitely the gathering point: The Low Carbon Cookbook Coop begin their seasonal food mapping today, a new Permaculture group has sprung up exchange growing ideas and good practice and the TN annual Seed Swap takes place at the Bluebell Allotments this weekend. Don't miss!
As the world summit on Climate Change approaches at the end of the month in Mexico, carbon reduction is back into focus: on 5/6 November groups from all of the UK are lobbying MPs, while our third cycle of Carbon Conversations are happening all over the city, including UEA and County Hall, and our home-grownTransition Circles enter their second year.
Meanwhile the TN blog This Low Carbon Life enters Year Two in high spirits: our new features week has been considering Waste - upcycling, recycling, bio diesel, food and incendiary incinerators - and we celebrated our first creative year in a fortnight where everyone chose their top posts and pictures.
And talking of festivities, here’s a great reminder of the firework of the year, the Magdalen Street Celebration. Keep an eye out for our upcoming sing-along, ceilidh, and winter party!
