REPORT: Spring scheming update - Exciting new ideas

Thank you to everyone who came to the Spring Scheming evening and made it a success. I was inspired by the breadth of ideas that emerged and by the new ideas that are being taken forward from it. We started by celebrating all of our fantastic successes of the past two and a half years, including but not limited to, the Norwich FarmShare Project, This Low Carbon Life blog and the Transition Circles.

We then imagined Norwich in 5 years time and wrote down all of the brilliant changes that had happened. Once these were grouped into rough topics and we had eaten the delicious food we got down to the hard graft of how we could make some of these ideas a reality. One of the groups were enthused by the idea of organising series of discussions in a variety of cafes that were not specifically transition related, but were designed to get people talking and building community. This group are meeting again to take this idea forward.

The other group wanted a community woodland and a beekeeping cooperative. There has been talk before of a community woodland so they were going to follow that up. They were also going to contact Sustainable Bungay about their beekeeping cooperative(CSA).

So all in all a rather exciting meeting! A list of all of the ideas that were mooted can be found in the resources section. If you would like to be involved in setting up any of these projects then please let me know and I will endeavour to put you in touch with the movers and shakers.(kezereky_the_first@hotmail.com). So once again thank you and here's to another two and a half years of amazing projects together. Kerry Lane
