I have posted about Transition Gawler on this thread https://www.aussieslivingsimply.com.au/forum/south-australia/346909-transition-town-gawler-2nd-informationfilm-night-30-april-2013#355446
But I just thought I would give a bit of an update on what has been going on.
We are producing monthly newsletters which are emailed out to all those on the mailing list, but past issues are able to be seen here http://us5.campaign-archive2.com/home/?u=c73f1d3e8f0548fd1ef5cf3ee&id=b7d60d45fb
We have a Facebook Chat group page which is growing and becoming more active http://www.facebook.com/groups/133074643541406/ (if anyone wants to join or spread the word feel free to).
Through the facebook group we have organized a monthly Garden and Produce share, most other people call these “fruit and veg swaps”, but we wanted to promote sharing rather than swapping, and we didn’t want to restrict it to just Fruit and veg. Our second meet up is happening this weekend, hopefully the weather holds out for us and we get a good number show up.
There is a Quiz night being organised for the start of August.
Recently there was a wicking bed workshop which was a joint thing between the Gawler Natural Resource Centre and Transition Gawler.
There is progress being made on a Community garden, and while this is not a Transition Gawler initiated thing, we have been able to use our network to get the word out and put people who want to be involved in touch with those who are running it.
There is a Soft Plastics Recycling trial happening in Gawler and again while this is not something Transition Gawler has instigated it is definitely something which Transition Gawler supports, so again using the network we have developed to spread the word on this trial and advise people how they can be involved if they want to.
Marching along nicely Vanessa, you must be feeling pleased. Thank you for the update.
The importance of building community can’t be allowed to fade from our list of ‘things to do’, imo.
