We’ve got a busy weekend! Come join us!

We’ve got lots of things on this weekend, although there is no dig-day!

Saturday: Hanwell Carnival

You can grow food in practically anything!

We’ve got a little stall at Elthorne Park, where we’ll be showing how to grow food in containers, any old containers, and selling some lovely plants for you to take away. We’ve also got some seeds that want sowing, so if there’s any kids out there who want to grow their own, we’re the place to be! We’ve also got a large quantity of old gardening magazines for you to peruse, and are on-hand for practical advice. You can also find out about Ealing Transition’s other activities: Bees, “Edible Ealing”, our food box scheme, Re-skilling Day 2… Come and see us!

Sunday: Lammas Community Orchard Family Day & “Food for Free” Foraging Walk!

From 11:00-13:00, Lammas Orchard will be a hive of activity, with people making stuff out of wood, and planting up the Edible Garden with some choice veggies! Come along and help out! (Child-friendly, adults can come too!). Map

From 14:00-16:00, Sam Sender will be leading a foraging walk in Pitshanger Park, and showing you how to gather “food for free” from our local abundance. Meet at the tennis courts, bring a basket or bag! Map
