Dear All


Tangential perhaps to the Tranistion Group, but I hope relevant nonetheless: please consider signing this petition against the proposed  cuts in street cleaning around our neighborhood, which is bound to have negative  environmental consequences:;

Hello all, and welcome to new members.  We've now got over 60 people on a wider mailing list, so if you're not already on that, get in touch.

Last week's meeting was another success.  I enjoyed a sea purslane omlette the next day - just one of the great tastes from our food swap.  

Just doing a round up before next week's core group and our first meeting about the project to green Sainsbury's in Willesden.

What's great about this group is people are bringing their friends and next door neighbours along.  Everyone's really enthusiastic.  Hope we can keep it going!

Next main meeting will be September - look out for more details soon.

Thanks.  Hope we can keep this up by making our next meeting on July 14th even better.  See

Besides the film we're having a local food swap, so hope everyone can bring along something to that, besides plenty of ideas for a discussion.  We'll be  following up our ideas from last time, with food and drink to keep us going.  See you there!

A quick note to anyone in TT Willesden looking for local food fanatics, you could do worse than start approaching these guys: hilarious writers and big fans of local food in Cricklewood!

Well worth reading...
