Who am I?

I'm part of the initiating group for TT K2K and although I'm interested in pretty much all aspect of the Transition Initiative, I've been concentrating on the Education and Awareness raising activities, such as the monthly film nights, farmer's market stalls and the handbook club. I'm interested finding new ways of enabling more people to get involved and feel a part of Transition, and trying to work out how we can harness and unleash the collective genius of this community... (without using too many buzzwords!)

Hi George!
I'd like to offer a skills sharing workshop in the early spring (February?) 'Cardboard, compost and coffee grounds' demonstrating and talking about some ways of using recycled materials on the allotment or in the vegetable garden. Can't work out how to put it up on the website and also don't know how to book space for the event - Fiveways would be fine. Can you advise?

To follow up on something you mentioned at the meeting, I would certainly like to have a workshop on finding yor way around the website and making the best use of it. Maybe others would be interested? All best, Maggie

Hope you had a good rest away from the hampster wheel. I had an idea for an art wkshop for the harvest festival. It's based on the Arcimboldo vegetable figure. I'll be doing the jam wkshop so maybe someone else arty would be interested in running with it?

Hi George, thanks for your welcoming email!

I am especially interested in all things to do with conservation, food and the arts. Sadly, I cannot make it to the Lexi tomorrow night but hope to come along to the next one!

Best wishes

Hi there, Mssg was from Paulette from my account (I haven't taken to referring to myself in the third person just yet), but no problem, we'll await the list of sites before planning the route for the cycle ride, which I had envisaged being on a weekend. As it stands, we're planning to be away from 2nd Sept to the 20th, and also have a couple of long weekends away in August.

Hi George, have you posted the potential growing sites yet? You mentioned on the food thread you were going to post them on another page? Once we have those Ash can begin to plan a potential route. We were also thinking, depending on what the sites are like, that we should have a bring a dish picnic at one of them. In terms of people with disabilities or those that don't ride this might also make it more inclusive. This means we need to aim for end of September weather wise. This also means that there will be very little time between the next meeting and the ride so email organisation is going to be quite essential.
Anyway, let me know your thoughts.

Hello George
See you tomorrow night (tuesday) to chat about the Big Lunch on Charteris Road 18th July.

Not sure how else to contact you George! Guess I'm a dinosaur by today's methods of communicating. David Young and I discussed my talking to the group about things I've done re energy saving at my house: secondary glazing, wood-burning stove, zone heating control; Transport wise: G-wiz and Streetcar membership. Well I'm ready and willing to go ahead, but not sure how things are done at KTKTT. Nick Hartley @ Hopefield Avenue.
