Offers: Seven medium-sized bags of topsoil

After a hearty weekend of gardening, my downstairs neighbour is now left with about seven medium-sized recycling bags filled with topsoil.

 

It's up for grabs but bear in mind it will need a bit of tender loving care and some mixing with manure before it'll be good to use.

 

If anyone's interested, it's available for immediate collection from Kilburn (but you must have your own transport).

 

Get in touch with me if you'd like to have…

Free paving slabs available

A friend of mine who lives in Leyton has recently converted her garden from a patio into a growing area so she now has about 32 paving slabs available for anyone who wants them (obviously you'll need your own transport to collect them).

 

She asked me to check if anyone from TTK2K would like first dibs on them. They're stacked up in her front garden so you can just pop down and help yourselves whenever you like.

 

Let me know if you're interested and I can give…

Newly proposed S510 Law in the US could limit citizen's right to grow their own food - worth reading

I just found this via a fairly reliable website and think it's worth reading, in light of what we saw at the recent showing of Food Inc. at the Lexi. Obviously, the law hasn't been passed yet but it still makes for interesting reading:

Maybe the Govt's doing something now?

Sell the sizzle, not the sausage

My friend Nathan from Transition Malvern sent me a guide to public-facing Climate Change advocacy that's really good. I strongly recommend everyone in the Comms and Awareness/Education teams take a look - I've only read the intro so far but it already makes a lot of sense. It's called "Sell the sizzle, not the sausage" and you can download it here:
