WELCOME TO TRANSITION BUXTON

WELCOME TO TRANSITION BUXTON
 
 
Q: Why should we care?
A: Because climate change and oil shortages will make our lives intolerable ... unless we start to change the way we live now.

SEPTEMBER GREEN DRINKS

Date: 
17 September, 2014 - 20:00 - 22:00
GREEN DRINKS WITH A DIFFERENCE!
WEDNESDAY 17th SEPTEMBER

THE SUN INN, HIGH STREET, FROM 8PM

Green Drinks is on the 17th of every month, regardless what day it falls. This month it will be  on a Wednesday.
 
We're also going for a different format this month, with a Themed Discussion about Transition in a Global Environment. As the movement becomes more widespread and international in nature, does it need to change? Does the grass roots model still work or should there be some central oversight? How do we ensure a common understanding and direction - or does it matter if we all do things differently? How can we best learn from the experiences of other groups across the world?
 
This is an opportunity to feed your thoughts into the future of the Transition movement.
 
We hope to see you there.
 
 

Mulching Workshop 10th August 2014

Ex-hurricane Bertha paused to allow us to explore the topic of mulching and green manures unhampered by umbrellas. The rain stopped for a neat 2 hours, resuming only at 3.35pm as we wrapped up. We talked about what exactly is a mulch? (any loose or sheet material laid over the soil surface); what's the point of mulching?; and what to do with a green manure when you want the space for other crops (cut & leave? cut & compost? dig it in? cover it in mulch?).

CONNIE'S TRIP TO BAKEWELL

Connie is now four years old and has had a few adventures over the years, but until July 2014 she'd never been out of Buxton, and never been in a vehicle. But when the request came for her to go to the Bakewell Green Fair, well - what could she say!? The horse box they sent to collect her was barely big enough, but she squeezed in there, and had a great day meeting new friends and old. As well as spreading the message that Consumerism is No Good!
