Spring is definitely springing and lots of new things are happenning - some much faster than the website and e-mail updates! Lots of the new things are being organised via social media, particularly Facebook, so if you're thinking of starting to use it, or got an account already but not using it very much, now's a good time to give a go and get exploring! Follow this link to the Transition Sherwood page, and there's also an active 'Sherwood in Nottingham' group exchanging local information & activities, and the new 'Sowing Sherwood' group
There will be a health walk linking three community gardens in Sherwood on Sunday 21st April, as part of Sherwood Community Centre's Health Fitness and Beauty Day - more details very soon!
Exciting new community gardening and urban food project starting up to grow wildflowers, fruit & vegetables around odd spots and neglected corners of Sherwood, joining up green dots between the bigger allotments & gardens. This is just getting going, via Sherwood Sowing open group on Facebook
Hood Street community garden and herb bed is also getting going soon, probably planting next Saturday,13th April - details on Facebook page Friends of Hood St Park
Transition Sherwood is a group of local people coming together to help our communities become less dependent on fossil fuels, become more resilient, and reduce our impact on the environment. The group started in 2008, with an active group initiating a range of events and projects. This evolved into a smaller group concentrating on two community gardens from 2015.
Updates about local community and environmental events, and national and international climate change and environmental issues are currently shared mainly via our Facebook page.
Transition Sherwood is very pleased to be a member of the Nottingham Growing Network in 2016-17, with funding from the People's Postcode Lottery supporting sharing of skills and resources around a network of growing projects.
The website's title picture is part of a mural in Hood St, Sherwood, painted by local young people in 2008 - signatures below.
