Transition Sherwood's garden at Sherwood Community Centre was awarded its second 'Outstanding' certificate in the 2016 'It's Your Neighbourhood' awards at Nottingham City Hall in November, and the newer Edingley Square garden a 'Thriving' award. Group members Vesse Ashley and Joan Cook are seen here recieving the award, and it was inspiring to see the variety, number and skills of so many other community garden projects and meet some of their gardeners at the event.
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.
