Transition Sherwood's Annual General Meeting will be at Sherwood Community Centre on Wednesday 27th April at 7pm, with updates from the group, herb garden cakes, networking, and a talk on sustainable gardening by Karen Fry.
Transition Sherwood's Food Garden at Sherwood Community Centre and the new garden at Edingley Square were amongst the many Nottingham community gardens recognised at Nottingham in Bloom's ' It's Your Neighbourhood' awards in September - the photo shows Jessica from the garden group receiving the award.
Catching up after a long absence...
At Transition Sherwood's AGM in late 2014, Sharing Sherwood became a seperate group, and continues to thrive running monthly meals from food that would otherwise go to waste. While the community food garden was going well and a new garden recently established at Edingley Square, the central coordinating group and other projects had lost energy with members moving on for personal reasons or moving on to other projects and campaigns. It was agreed to amend the constitution to reflect this, and concentrate on the garden projects and keeping up a prescence mainly via Facebook.
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.
