Welcome to Transition Marlborough

 

This year's AGM

Image

Rich Pitts was re-elected as our Chairperson and Shane Hughes from REconomy invited us to re-imagine Marlborough High Street as a shared space, where pedestrians and cyclists have priority and some of our favourite shops are integrated with 'transition-orientated' enterprises.

We came up with several great ideas, including a drop-in, high tech centre where people could learn new IT skills, an empty shop where young people could meet, a bus shelter, an electronic public information board, a rickshaw garage and an out-door area where people could learn to dance and sing. In the picture, Richard is explaining his idea for establishing a timber yard, where young people could learn wood-turning and carpentry skills, utilising wood gleaned from properly managed forests.

Practical Permaculture for Transition Training

Image The penultimate session of this year's course was held in Jeremy's forest garden in Froxfield.  It was hard to believe that this garden was a barren lawn just 3 years ago - but is now full of fruit and nut trees, perennial herbs and vegetables, as well as colourful, bee-friendly flowers.  As a result this space is now teeming beneficial insects and highly productive almost all year round.  We got lots of great ideas for suitable plants that can be used to  increase diversity and create a nutritious 'forest edge' in our own gardens.

Find out more about this 10 session, permaculture training course, here...
