Transition & Permaculture Hull, November 2022

As you may know Jenny Parsons, who has been running the Transition & Permaculture Hull website since its beginning, is now retiring.

The www.transitionhull.co.uk website will remain online but we are currently looking for someone to take this on.

We are also updating the email list which is now going to be sent out from the address permaculturehull@gmail.com  If you would like to receive emails, please send a short message to that email address in order to join the new list.

We are still Transition & Permaculture Hull, but we will now be more focused on land-based permaculture activities based at Constable Community Allotment, HU3 3DF. See the website at www.constableallotment.org.uk

We are proud to announce that Constable Community Allotment has now been officially accepted as a Land Learner Site by the Permaculture Association www.permaculture.org.uk

We are hoping to host some exciting events in spring 2023 and we’d love to see you there. More information on the new email list

Don’t forget this is YOUR group, so if you have any ideas, we’d love to hear from you!

Finally, we are sure you will join us in offering a huge Thank You to Jenny who has been wonderful at keeping the website going for the past 12 years. We will miss you!
