Are we losing the skills to grow our own food?

Announcing Transition Stratford’s first event of 2017

Join us on Sunday 5th February to find out about organic growing that won’t cost the earth.

Our theme for this year is exploring small changes that can make a big difference and our first open session concentrates on inspiring you to get growing as the day’s lengthen and the season turns.

We begin with a shared lunch at Lifeways on Albany Road CV37 6PG from 1pm – just bring a plate of something and share a relaxing meal and chat. We then have a talk from Diana Sandercock from Heart of England Organic Group from 2pm. Diana has been an organic grower for 40 years and a volunteer Master Composter for Worcestershire County Council since 2009 so brings a wealth of experience to share with us.

We’ll also have the chance to swap seeds as well as stories so search through your stores and bring along any that you no longer have a use for and swap them for something different- they can be opened packets, out of date ones, self-saved or new packets that you just haven’t got around to trying – veg or flowers the choice is yours. There are a couple of boxes sitting here next to me just waiting for new homes so please come along and take your pick! Bring friends too 🙂
