No Money, No Power, No Waste — that was the ethos behind The Festival of Forgotten Skills down at the Glen Forrest Community Garden. We were proud to be part of what turned out to be a HUGE SUCCESS. Congratulations to the organisers for a fabulous community event. Everything donated and free. Free demos of spinning, crocheting, papermaking, pruning, basketmaking, scithing, wicking boxes and heaps of stuff to SHARE: clothes, seeds, plants and garden produce; kids activities and games. As well as the woodfired pizza demos. Hope I haven’t forgotten any of the amazing community members who showed up to share their skills AND brought their own shade & gear as well. LOCAL LEGENDS.
Good News! Transition moves are happening over in the Kalamunda area. Adele has taken the initiative to get it all moving, launching a Facebook page as a gathering point. Well done!! Spread the word.
Here’s the link and part of the first post:
“Transition Town Kalamunda has broken out of it’s shell. And slowly this fledgling will make its way to the edge of the nest.
One day soon she will be ready to fly.
In the meantime if you are a Shire of Kalamunda local or a wanna-be, feel free to contact me about plans for the new year and how Transition Town Kalamunda will become a fully functioning entity.”
The Down to Earth mob’s Spring Seed Sharing & Planting (Sat morning 10 Sep) was great fun, as usual. Some hands-on seed raising soil mixing, then share, plant & socialise in that order. Vera explained that the e calendula flowers that were growing there in abundance, could be infused in oil for several weeks to be the base of a healing cream (stay tuned for more cream making)
Couldn’t think of a nicer way to get engaged in your local community than to Adopt-a-Spot like the folks here at The Blue Wren Reserve in Stoneville are inviting you to do. Something all the family would enjoy. Contact Kathryn on 0429 990 861 if you require further information
SCHOOLS’ TREE DAY at Mundaring Primary School, last Friday 29 July. Students from Kindy to Year 6 commemorated Schools’ Tree Day by planting activities with their buddy classes in the Early Childhood Centre. The day was extra special because it was the first event in which members from Mundaring in Transition (MiT) assisted. Many thanks to Barbara Shepherd and Ken Graham, the volunteers from MiT.

Bring something tasty to share for morning tea.
Lots of good ideas here. Sally & Mike are both artists at heart: a potter and stonemason (he built the fab pizza oven at Glen Forrest Community Garden). This is Mike’s take on Permaculture author Linda Woodrow’s chicken dome tractor. The chooks do the pre-cultivation & fertilisation, then he plants vegies on the spot after the dome & chooks rotate on to the next quadrant. Works a charm! Also, their first edible garden enclosed by impressive rendered strawbale walls.
