Transition Circles are neighbourhood groups supporting individuals to make practical transitions to reducing energy consumption, sharing experiences of what's working and what's difficult in making real changes.
WELCOME TO TRANSITION NORWICH...
We're part of a world-wide community movement in response to peak oil and climate change. This site gives you details of our up and coming events and meetings, as well as reports and related matters that are going on in Norwich and East Anglia.
It is a dull and cold day as I write this update but we've already started the New Year at Grapes Hill Community Garden with our Annual General Meeting (12th January) and an afternoon's Fruit Pruning and Winter Tidy Up (29th January).
We pruned our apple and quince trees and redcurrants, blackcurrant and gooseberry. We removed some unwanted plants (all the Hemlock and surplus Black Horehound) from the meadow and replaced them with Oxeye Daisy seedlings. Over twenty people came along to help, including new visitors to the garden and most of our Raised Bed tenants.
On Sunday 19th February we are holding an event in the garden called Look Forward To Spring. The event runs from 11am to 3pm and admission is free. We will have a seed swap and garden information stalls such as Norfolk Master Gardeners and Master Composters.
The local RSPB Group will hold four nestbox building sessions: 11am, 12 noon, 1pm and 2pm. These are free of charge but places are limited so please book in advance by phone (07729 540 482) or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org).
