      “Cutting food waste is a delicious way of saving money, helping to feed the world and protect the planet” Tristram Stuart

      Our latest project, the Community Fridge, is full of food that is just before, on or just past its best before date, that can be repurposed towards eradicating food poverty and waste. Surplus food is shared within the local community. Ours is part of the Hubbub Community Fridge Network.  So far over 50 Community Fridges have been set up across the UK, helping thousands connect to their communities, whilst accessing nutritious food and reducing waste. A further 50 are planned by the end of 2020.

      The fridge is open to anyone to take whatever they would like.  Nothing has a price, people can pay what they want for any item or nothing at all. We’d like to think that those that are living in food poverty will have their items for free and everyone else will pay a reasonable amount within their budget, which will help fundraise for solar panels to power a 2nd fridge and freezer.  So far, we’ve had a few people that have kindly, clearly paid more than the value of the produce.

      Food donations are welcome: Items include bread, pastries, dips, hard cheeses, fresh fruit and vegetables – anything that is safe to eat and meets food hygiene standards. A list is available on request.

    1. Introduction to Permaculture
      10:00 am – 4:30 pm

      Learning from Nature – a 2-day course.

      A natural system, such as a woodland, keeps itself going.  It doesn’t need weeding or fertiliser.  How does it do that, and what can we learn from it?

      The principles of permaculture can help you design your garden, your lifestyle, even a community group.

      Permaculture can help you to choose when to tread lightly and when to leave your mark.

      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 such as:

      • Help in the garden
      • A lift to a garden centre

      If you would like to offer something else, now or later, that would be fine.  All we ask now is that you book, and pledge to attend.

      To book or for further information, please contact Ros Bedlow: directory@transitionleytonstone.org.uk

      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.

      11:00 am – 3:00 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?
