THIS PLACE project

Some information about an upcoming project, broadly around themes of Land and Community in Hull.

COMING SOON….11th June-10th July 2022 :

THIS PLACE presents a month of events and workshops to start a conversation about ‘this place’ (being Hull and the surrounding area), to begin to get to know it, warts and all – our unknown/unloved wild spaces, our collective traumas, our history, our mud, rivers, people, and ourselves. How does class, race, gender, power and inequality fit into/effect all that? How can we recconect and become a resillient and caring people in this place and time in history?

We hope that some longer lasting projects/groups will come out of it. The Launch Party is on Sat 11th June,  6pm – late at Ground HU3 1YE, with live music, poems, exhibition and more…  For the timetable of events go to

Constable Community Allotment, Sat 21 May 2022

On Sat 21 May we will be having a Permablitz on Constable Community Allotment, from 11 am onwards.  Please note the date has been changed from 14 to 21 May.

After a period of limited activity on the allotment related to covid restrictions, the site is in need of some TLC. There is lots to do to, both in the community growing area and in the mini-orchard on the main field. Everybody is invited to come and help us, and we hope to see some new faces amongst the familiar ones. We’ve missed having lots of people coming on to the site and we hope lots of you will take advantage of the benefits of the fresh air and exercise on offer. Just what the Doctor ordered!  Please bring a packed lunch and we will provide hot drinks.

We are also planning to restart our veg box scheme, where people agree to donate £7 a week to the upkeep of the allotment during the season, and we will thank you by providing a weekly veg box containing our lovely organically-grown produce.

Volunteers are always welcome to join our regular sessions on the allotment which at the moment are Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10.30 am until around 2.00 pm. These sessions are also an opportunity to see permaculture in action and learn about permaculture in practice.

Any questions please give me a ring!

Transition Network event: Together We Can 11 – 21 May 2022

Together We Can is a ten-day online summit to celebrate and super-charge the power of community-led change. It includes 25+ sessions carefully crafted to nurture, build & inspire you & your Transition group and offers the chance to connect, replenish and recharge your activism.  There will be talks, interactive workshops and speakers on a breadth of issues from vertical growing to healing trauma, imaginative resistance to doughnut economics, rewilding to creating a thriving social economy.

Who’s it for?
Together We Can is designed with and for UK-based Transition Groups by Transition Together, which supports the movement across Britain to develop and grow.  The Summit is free, online and open to all involved in Transition groups and interested in our approach to community-led change.

Participants don’t need to attend all sessions – check out the varied programme here:  https://transitiontogether.org.uk/events/summit2022/

How can people join in? 

It is not necessary to attend the whole summit, but signing up for a Summit ticket gives you access to everything on offer and avoids having to sign up for each individual session. With a Summit ticket, you’ll also get regular updates about new sessions and speakers, and be invited to join Vive, an new online space for Transitioners to connect, share and work together. A bit like an online hive!

The Summit is free, though you can donate if you find value in the programme, and any funds raised will help us make our work more inclusive. Book a ticket here: http://together-we-can.eventbrite.co.uk

The Summit is open to all, so there’s no problem sharing it on your group facebook or twitter or with your wider mailing list.
