This Low Carbon Life in the Spring

In synch with spring the TN blog stepped up its pace and introduced a three day week for our regular contributors. Our keen eyes were on all the season’s activities - woodland flowers, hedgerow medicine, unholy cows, therapeutic dogs, local carrots, nettle soup, insulated attics, city bicyclists, children hiding among cardboard boxes, the mythology of bees and fennel, as well as the key Transition topics of inner resilience, economic collapse and peak oil. One of our Sunday contributors John Heaser reported how 6000 toads were rescued from the roads of Little Melton and Costessey. And there was a lively debate about population control after Erik’s posts on the biosphere in transition.

We also began our first monthly topic week: our March elephant in the room was on Flying, the second on the Industrial Food System. We also had an innovative photoblog week called What is Happening in My Garden (18-24 April) – John’s and Erik’s hardworking organic vegetable plots in the hinterlands, Jane’s city sanctuary (with tomatoes on the windowsill, small fruit trees and woodland fritillaries), Mark’s magical morning in his wild medicine garden, Elena’s new edible flower garden at her neighbour’s. In May we’re having a tongue-in-cheek look at the 7 deadly resistances (to Transition). Why not become a follower and join in the conversation? (Charlotte Du Cann/Communications)
