With the end of July people may be looking out for things to do which are green and furry, so I have browsed through the Transition Links and selected the following, but please car share, go by train, cycle, or even walk, (and do you remember the days when you could hitch-hike?)
Grow your own apothecary is on in Brighton, Stanmer Park, August 6th, 10 to 5.
Fruit Tree Grafting, same place, August 13th, same time
There’s a talk and picnic in Christchurch this Friday 29th July, 2011, timed for 20.30 to 22.30, which seems a bit odd so maybe check the time, or maybe the sun doesn’t set in Christchurch in summer?
The Good Life Family Week at Monkton Wyld – August 8th to 12th
Near Chichester, Sunday July 31st there is Bracken Clearance for the healthy minds and bodies, in a wild daffodil area, but no daffodils this time of year of course.
If you can get to Exmouth with your bike there is a cycle ride planned for this Sunday.
Near Falmouth there is a Yoga event over several days, and kids go free.
Now this is advance warning for gardeners, and you will understand why, Swap Seeds! here. September at Wakehurst Place.
Help is needed now in Hythe for the Venetian Festival, building a float
Help is also needed for a Beach Clean up, Mothecombe Beach, which is a beach somewhere in the middle of the South Coast of England, I think!
Lewes has a family fun day this Sunday
Green Open Doors sounds a must for those wanting to know more about green energy, September but may be booked up if I didn’t tell you now (actually I am not sure you can book, but it is still a good thing to put in your calendar)!
This weekend at Stanmer Park there is Scything courses, but don’t forget to count your fingers and toes before you start.
Some magic in living is on offer at the end of August, 28th to be precise, near Totnes
This Friday 29th July there is a tea dance, Sturminster Newton
Today, Wednesday 27th July 2011, there is a Produce Swap in Southampton (why doesn’t every town do that?)
In Sidmouth there is a BBQ on 9th August 18.30
If you are quick you can get a look in on the renewable energy show, on Thursday 28th and Friday July 29th, Cornwall.
On 29th August Ottery has an opening for a new cycle path
So, there is plenty to do this summer, in all kinds of ways. A pretty mixed bag of events too, but apart from Brighton the big cities seem to have less Transition activity than the smaller towns and villages.
If you didn’t find anything of interest then maybe you could browse here and find something.
And whatever you do, have fun!
