Dear Transitioners,

Last Wednesday, local film-maker Ruth Hessey presented her world-class documentary “Waste Not” to a full room, despite the torrential downpour. The food was amazing, and we all learned how changes at the individual level can ripple through the system to create big waves in reducing landfill waste. Thanks to Ruth and all our enthusiastic members and crew for making the evening so great!

This week, Lance is back fresh from the Permaculture Convergence in New Zealand with plenty of great stories, interesting information & new friends to talk about. Make sure you nab him at one of our events for a chat on what’s happening in wider circles. And as always, we’ve got some great stuff coming up this week… read on!


25 May: “Sekem – Born of the Sun”

Wednesday Night Movie & Organic Dinner

The Sekem Farm is an ecological paradise in the middle of the Egyptian desert, both a thriving business and a close-knit community. It was born from Ibrahim Abouleish’s ambitious vision for an “Economy of love” combining ecological, social and cultural developments with economic success. In this oasis, nothing is lost, and a delicately balanced relationship between workers and nature is established.
