Welcome to our December News!

Winter has arrived big time and so here are some reasons to be cheerful. We’re having a Christmas Party on 22 December and everyone is invited. It’s a bring-your-own event so wrap up and come bearing gifts. Bring-and-share is theme of the month as The Low Carbon Cookbook gathers its one planet community recipes, the Permaculture crew fair-share in each other’s gardens and kitchens and exciting developments unfold in the Co-housing Group. And don’t miss a new Transport initiative revving up with the all Norfolk Electric Vehicle Conversion Club.

Norwich Community Agriculture are meanwhile looking forward - visioning some new plans for their sites in Postwick and the Hewett school, planting trees and getting ready for the first Spring sowing. For February they have organised a “Dragon Dreaming” workshop on how to run successful projects. Book well ahead!

Right now as the world summit on Climate Change takes place in Mexico and everyone gears up to the National March to Parliament on Saturday, we're dealing with all kinds of power issues in our neighbourhood Transition Circles and Carbon Conversations. Last Saturday Norwich’s Zero Carbon Concert was held in an unheated St Thomas Hall and was a great success (resilient community or what!)

On the blog, This Low Carbon Life we’ve all been seriously into weather, celebrating seasonal shifts in our first Autumn photoblog and this week looking at different faces of Climate Change, the personal and the political. In between we’ve considered a shocking affair, well-being in the time of peak oil, sustainable washing, learned to love numbers and began our first Transition Themes week. Keep sharing. Keep warm!
