Satish Kumar and Polly Higgins at Queen's Park Books 17th July

This was a great event, which I wrote up for Queen's Park Books website

Please read about it and Resurgence magazine there.

Lots of us were there from the group - we should have been wearing the t-shirts though!  The shop was packed, which shows what interest there is locally in activities such as ours, but quite a few members of the audience hadn't heard of us. …

I have several bags of chopped up wood from felled trees and an old shed roof which would be suitable for burning in a wood stove or making a log pile. They are in my front garden, bagged and ready for taking away. Just let me know if you would like them.  Marjory

Babyhood - film


This project was born out of my experiences of having my first child, and how much it made me question myself and everything i thought was normal.

I couldn't help but be drawn to reading books looking at parenting practices, and deciphering them was hard. I started to realise that we (mothers and fathers) don't trust ourselves anymore to do the…

Regarding knitting classes at Kilburn Library

Unfortunately the classes are no longer available at Kilburn (or Kensal as it is closed) although they did run quite successfully for 2 years or so.

I no longer work there but I did approach the library to see if I could continue with the class anyway,sadly they have turned me down because of the impending May apparently.

However, I would still be glad to run the class somewhere...any suggestions for locations and times?

I do have time on my…

Bee keeping photograph project.

Hi my name is Mike.

I am starting a project photographing bee keepers and bees themselves.

The project is about the mutual respect between the keeper and the bee, showing the beauty of the collection of honey and the care you put in collecting it. 

This is partly an issue-based project, due to the worldwide problems Apiarist are facing with the loss of Honey Bee Colonies, mainly associated with environment and climate factors, leading to the colony collapse disorder…

Sweet Chestnut Foraging

If you travel through Hyde Park there is a beautiful avenue of Sweet Chestnut trees (about a hundred) just north of the Rotten Row cycle path and just south of the Serpentine. They are ripe and ready. Take leather gloves for plucking them off the tree and roll the husks under foot to get the nuts out. I got a carrier bag full on Tuesday. The only other pickers were some Italian building workers in their lunch hour and the Serpentine geese are foraging too. Follow the geese for the trees where… Continue

Benefit film night this Friday to save Brent Libraries

Dear All, this is my first blog so I hope it works. A friend of mine supports the campaign to stop Brent from closing local libraries, which is of course dear to the hearts of Transition Folk. We seem to use them a lot, both as borrowers and as venues, so I hope that you will come along to the film if you can. I'll be there and it would be great to meet some of you afterwards for a drink. Let me know if you plan to come and we can wear distinctive clothing, or something.…
