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.
Nothing is closer to Transition’s heart than people creating food together locally. It is a radical act of reclaiming and healing our broken food system. So how happy are we that another Community is sprouting it’s own village veggie plot. VERY HAPPY! Just look at this photo of them … a good looking bunch (and that’s referring to John’s silverbeet !!) You can read all about their vision – and how to join in with them – in this Hills Gazette article http://www.communitynews.com.au/news/Village-garden-idea-blooming/7679670
