Vertical Veg Workshop

TheFinal_WinterV3 next event in our Community Garden will be a suitably seasonal affair, with free soup, artisan bread, cake, and a warming fire to boot. All are invited. Oh yes, and the education side of it? We will be partnering with Groundwork to run a Vertical Veg workshop. This is about building growing spaces from recycled guttering, a very clever way of maximising wall space and growing more. See you there!

Date: Saturday December 6th

Venue: Church Lane Community Garden, Harold Road, E11 4QX (next to the children’s playground and the footbridge over the tracks)

Time: 12pm-3pm

Transition Information Stall

If you would like to know more about the Transition movement in general and Transition Leytonstone in particular, come along to see us at Portfolio Space, a pop-up hub next to the Star of India restaurant. There will be information and fliers to take away about all of our current activities:  the Community Garden Workshops, the Saturday Produce Stall, the Big Energy Saving Network, GardenShare, Film Screenings and E11 Eco. You will be able to browse some of the Transition books series and purchase the quarterly newspaper Transition Free Press. Apart from information on what we do, energy saving plugs and waste-busting mugs, there will also be a few copies of Shelf Life, a colourful and individualistic photographic tome celebrating local businesspeople in E11, E4 and E18.

…and a Transition Baby!IMG_0360

Congratulations to Rezina Malik Moran (Transition Leytonstone’s treasurer) and her husband Donal, on the birth, November 1st, of their first-born, Edward Abdul Malik Moran. He’s an enchanting and very healthy little boy, weighing 7lb 11oz (3.486 kg) at birth – and goodness knows how much more now. He sleeps very deeply – but only during daylight hours. We wish them all well and hope that the proud parents are getting a bit of sleep at last!
