Happy New Year Everyone!

As the light increases and winter looks forward to Spring, the stuff of life is our key Transition ingredient this month. Valuing the growing and cooking of food is the main theme of January as the Low Carbon Cookbook starts to track the ecological footprints of its winter larder, the newly-formed Permaculture group get ready to dig the garden for Spring sowing and Transition Hethersett put in their first community whole food order. There are also two free events this month for everyone interested in community and co-operative food enterprises - a communications training day and a mini East Anglian food conference. Check them both out here.

Norwich Community Agriculture meanwhile are preparing new plans for their two market gardens. Why not join them this month at Postwick for a grand planting of native trees? And talking of running successful projects, don't forget to book your hot seat at the "Dragon Dreaming” weekend in February.

On the blog, This Low Carbon Life we began last month facing that driving force behind Transition, Climate Change at Cancun and ended by considering our aspirations for the New Year rather nearer home. In the hours in between we carried on reskilling, repurposing, riding buses, sledging. thinking like creators. We considered religion and politics in Transition, contemplated the weather, sisterhood, took part in the Great Norfolk Anti-Cuts Demo, and watched the solstice sunrise. Look out for our second Transition Themes sequence this January, our first Fashion Week and tomorrow for Andrew Boswell on the controversial waste topic, incineration. Have a good one!
