This Changes Everything

I was fortunate enough to go and hear Naomi Klein talking on her new book This Changes Everything on Monday night.  (Me and 1999 others!)  She spoke very positively about the Transition Town movement and what we do on a local level.

Another point she made well was the need at this time for peer education groups on climate change and on our responses to the crisis.  This resonated with me - feeling the need to be more specifically informed and the need to join with others to…

Some pics from the Film Night on Charteris Street.  Despite the fears of a rain soaked evening, the rain managed to stay away all evening. Thanks to all that came and joined us!

Wine making in NW6

Some pictures below of wine making in NW6 this weekend. Over 100kg were picked from local gardens, which will hopefully be magically transformed in to a wonderful local wine. Look out for a street party in a few months time once the wine is ready.…

Edible Chickweed?

I had a few conversations last week with people surprised to find out that chickweed is edible. Familiar to gardeners as a ubiquitous weed, up at Kilburn tube station where Transition Kensal to Kilburn has mini-allotment, our beds are full of them.

Michael Stuart, who is our resident urban foraging expert at the tube garden (he knows more than many people I know, anyway) told me a while ago that it's edible. Since then, we started referring to our weeding of chickweed as "harvesting",…

Habitat panels

Moss (or 101 Ways to Procrastinate while in the Garden)

I know Spring is a bad time for my long forgotten winter blogpost and pics. But I'll be brief.

If there's one type of plant (Angiosperms vs Bryophytes? I'll leave someone better informed to fight it out) that looks amazing in the depths of winter, it's moss. I know very little about them, but I love them at this time of year. They seem so vibrant and bursting with life at a time when everything else has gone a bit quiet and underground. So I have a bit of respect for them. For the kid…

Sloe & apple jam

I'm usually more of a traditional female crafter & grafter, although it's mostly my food based skills that have seen a bit more action recently.

This was firstly in the form of some sloe & apple jam - both frozen after last autumn's harvest due to lack of time. Gorgeous colour, as expected, and similar to damson jam. I couldn't wait to taste it. But it had a strange dry, slightly grainy texture like smooth peanut butter, created or activated by…

Kiwis in London

I was out on Hampstead Heath yesterday for work (honest). I decided to walk back towards Swiss Cottage for my weekly swim when something made me stop in my tracks. I don't think I've ever seen a kiwi vine in flower in real life, and certainly wasn't expecting to see one in London.

But this vine was so healthy looking and laden that it hung right over the pavement, which why I noticed them. See the photo's below.…

Looking to volunteer for gardening work

I take it that the pictures on the home page were from the event that took place last night? I really wanted to go along to this but I was too ill. Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone needed any ongoing assistance with gardening on the weekends, either in allotments, at home or whatever? Please contact me via the site.


Thanks,

Damian

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. …

WOOD SUITABLE FOR A WOOD BURNING STOVE

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
