Transition Circles are neighbourhood groups supporting individuals to make practical transitions to reducing energy consumption, sharing experiences of what's working and what's difficult in making real changes.
Are you involved in a community project? Want people to know?
We're part of a world-wide community movement in response to peak oil and climate change. This site gives you details of all our up and coming events and meetings, as well as reports, previews of films and books and related matters that are going on in Norwich and East Anglia.
We're offering two fantastic chances to join the FarmShare growing team as an apprentice.
The two apprenticeships are voluntary and will last for 6 months, during that time the apprentices will work for 1.5 days a week on the farm (a day of which will be spent with the horticultural mentor), they will participate in a two day communications for community growers workshop, organise a volunteer workday, meet other similar groups from East Anglia and further afield, visit other enterprises, learn the basics of organic production (including protected cropping, crop rotation, weed control, crop/harvest planning, fertility building and more). In addition they will learn more about how community enterprises like Norwich FarmShare work and develop their skills in team-working and volunteer management. Both apprentices will have the option to attend an introduction to permaculture course and to choose a local enterprise they'd like to visit. There's more detail here on the FarmShare website.
It sounds pretty amazing!
