FILM: Elemental at Village Hall

November 14, 2014 from 8pm to 10pm
Tells the story of three individuals in India, Canada and Australia united by their deep connection with nature and driven to confront some of the most pressing ecological challenges of our time. Separated by continents yet sharing an unwavering commitment to protecting nature, the characters in this story are complex, flawed, postmodern heroes for whom stemming the tide of environmental destruction fades in and out of view – part mirage, part miracle. "Elegantly told…beautifully…See More

Introducing Transition Thursdays

Starting in June, to coincide with the publication of 'The Power of Just Doing Stuff', Transition Network will be holding 6 consecutive 'Transition Thursdays'. The aim is to use the launch of the book as the opportunity to bring some support and invigoration to initiatives, and potentially to enable some exciting coming together of neighbouring initiatives too.

We would like…

In terms of cultivation, my allotment isn't that great, but it doesn't have sea lavender growing in it ;)

Sorry I didn't get to the meeting on Tuesday; I was in Leiden. How did it go?

All a fraction confusing Mike for the information technology challenged like me but...mmmm...I'll get used to it? Yes, I LOVE your new photo! Wish I knew how to get one of my younger pics like that on the site too! Annette

Hi Mike
No honey yet I'm afraid - the weather hasn't been very kind to the bees so far, except for the warm days last week. I think beekeepers are very concerned to ensure that colonies are really strong, and I for one am rather loath to undertake anything other than a very rudimentary inspection. But Mother Nature's bounty will surely manifest once again at some point (probably after everyone has just got over their hayfever) anyway, I'll let you know.
(Love the photo)

Oil prices rose dramatically today reaching $133.89 at the time of writing. Plus Radio4 news said there could be a 5p rise at the pump by the weekend. What is the point at which we cross the Rubicon and we really take Transition seriously?

Hi Mike,
Just looking around in my clumsy way for where on this website to post up our conclusions at the Transition Group Culture Workshop 24/5. Can you guide me to the spot please.

Kira who works up at Emerson was thrilled by the fruit activity on Sunday - she told me it all got done - 15 of you and 1 from Em - what a fantastic project alongside the sewing of bags (this Sat at the Community Centre market- all welcome, even if like me you can't sew! - last month we had such a laugh) Transition projects are actually happening - what happens next? will the fruit be turned into something delicious? and by whom? and it may be time to give the bags away for free in the village -
