Mushroom Magic, Permaculture for Transition…and November Green Drinks

Posted on November 8, 2014 by ecoviewfinder



Introduction to Wild Mushrooms

Did you know that there are more than 1500 species of mushrooms growing wild in London?

On November 15, 12-2pm, come to the Church Lane Community Garden for an introduction to the mysterious kingdom of the Fungi. In this interactive session, you’ll learn about how mushrooms fit into our ecosystem, how to tell them apart, and whether we should be including them on our dinner plate. There will be plenty of specimens on hand, and participants are invited to bring their own for study.

For people new to this list, the Community Garden is on Harold Road, E11 4QX. The entrance is next to the children’s playground and the footbridge over the Central Line.

Please RSVP with Shannon at or 07450474538.

Permaculture for Transition: January Weekend Course

Have you ever wondered what Permaculture has to do with Transition?

Permaculture is a creative, ethical approach for designing any process so that it flows with rather than against nature. Although traditionally applied to land- based projects, we can design our actions to encompass the ethics and principles of permaculture.The new Permaculture for Transition course will now take place on 24th – 25th January 2015, in Streatham Hill.  Explore how we can apply Permaculture principles to Transition projects and events, aiming to make them more resilient and effective.

Ros Bedlow (Transition Leytonstone) and Samantha Woods (Transition Leicester) will be co-facilitating Permaculture for Transition, especially developed for Transitioners by a team of Transition and Permaculture trainers from around the UK.

This course is for people involved in Transition, or thinking of setting up a Transition Town. It is suitable both for people new to Permaculture, or for those who have focused mainly on land-based projects.To read more about the course, please follow this link . The course has been approved by both the Permaculture Association, and Transition Network. To download the booking form click here
