      11:00 am – 4:00 pm

      Church Lane Community Garden will be open again every Tuesday from 11am to 4pm (also Saturdays, 10am-4pm). It’s on Harold Road, just past the children’s playground and the footbridge over the Central line. Come along to see what’s growing, admire our locally built solar dryer, apple press and cob oven.  Not to mention our rainwater storage facilities!

      You can also borrow a range of gardening tools; plants are available for a donation. Community gardener Shannon will be on hand to answer any questions you may have. We welcome new people – perhaps you’d like to volunteer?

      A few examples: mushroom growing, apple juicing, compost making, pruning, building a cold frame. Experienced or not, we welcome new people.

      Perhaps you’d like to volunteer? That would be fantastic, as our hard-working community garden team could always do with more help.

      The stall has been going since July 2011; it’s a partnership between Transition Leytonstone and local food growing cooperative OrganicLea. Definitely the best place in Leytonstone for seasonal organic and local fresh produce, it’s open every Saturday from 10am-3pm, sometimes a little bit later – if you’re lucky.Saturday Stall-a_31.10.15 The stall also features eggs from ex-battery rescued hens (very happy layers now), super organic veggie samosas (the best I’ve ever eaten), jams, chutneys, fruit juices and amazing locally baked bread – one slice will definitely satisfy you for a while! Also not to be missed: OrganicLea’s unusual mixed salad bags – the contents vary throughout the year, with brightly coloured edible flowers a summer trademark.

      Transition Leytonstone also provides stall volunteers, who enjoy a 20% discount on all produce. If you’re interested in regular or occasional volunteering, find out more from RoseMary, our volunteer coordinator.

    1. Best Before Stall @ Church Lane Car Park Market
      10:00 am – 4:00 pm

      Alongside our successful Saturday Produce Stall, a food rescue stall.

      Our first Best Before Stall - October 1, 2016

      Our first Best Before Stall – October 1, 2016

      The Best Before Stall stocks an ever-changing selection of packaged foods from spices to rices – via puddings, preserves, pasta, drinks, crisps, teas and chocolates. We source these foods from local shops as well as from a few thoughtful individuals. One thing all of these foods have in common is that they are all past their ‘best before’ date. They are perfectly OK and legal to be offered for sale. So come along, have a browse, choose your items and pay us what you feel is right. The stall is run in collaboration with the Best Before Project, ThisisRubbish and FRP. We are currently running this stall on the first and third Saturday of every month. We are starting to supply food to a group supporting Leytonstone street sleepers, as well as to the Christian Kitchen in Walthamstow, and to one of our stall volunteers who cooks meals for homeless people at the Ilford Salvation Army. If you’d like to volunteer with us, we might be able to hold it every Saturday. Stop the waste, stop the rot!

    2. Working With Nature, Thinking Like a Tree – A Two-Day Introduction to Permaculture @ To be confirmed
      10:00 am – 5:00 pm

      A natural system, like a woodland, keeps itself going. It doesn’t need weeding, or fertiliser. How does it do that, and can we learn from it? Can we work with nature to create truly sustainable systems?

      photo 2-2

      The principles of Permaculture can help you design your garden, your balcony, your lifestyle – even a community group. The idea of Transition Towns is based on Permaculture.

      Permaculture can help you to choose when to tread lightly and when to leave your mark.photo 1-2

      This course will be led by Phil Mason and Ros Bedlow, and will be held at a private address in Leytonstone. The address will be provided when you have booked.

      We are offering this course to you on a ‘gift economy’ basis. Rather like an oak tree ‘offers’ acorns to a squirrel, we are not asking you to pay for it. If you would like to give us something to show gratitude for the course, we do have some needs. You are invited to think about what you can offer over the course of the weekend.

      If you are time poor, and would prefer to offer money, that would be fine. All we ask now is that you book, and pledge to attend. We do need to know numbers to prepare for the course.

      More information on the gift economy is available – just get in touch.

      To book or to find out more, please contact Ros Bedlow: rosbedlowAThotmail.com
