Transition Sherwood will be taking part in Sherwood Community Centre's Robin Hood Mediaeval Fete and Open Day, Sunday.16th September, 12 - 4pm. There'll be activities to watch and take part in, craft stalls, and a themed fancy dress competition. The Transition Sherwood community food garden at the centre will be open as part of the event - come and talk to garden group members, hunt for minibeasts, have a go at painting glass jars inspired by the garden with Crafty Glass, and come on a Robin Hood themed 'Living From the Woods' walk with Joan C and Vesse. This is the same day as Nottingham In Bloom's 'Grow Your Own' day, but only through the park and across the road.

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.
