Seed Swap, AGM and Supper 10 April 2017

The next meeting of Transition & Permaculture Hull will take place on

Mon 10 April 2017 at Boulevard Village Hall, Hull HU3 3EL.

There will be a Seed Swap from 7pm to 8pm, for people to bring along surplus seeds (can be ones you have collected or ones you have bought). Then from 8pm to 9pm the Annual General Meeting will approve the accounts, review the year and plan for the coming year. At 9pm we will have a Bring-and-Share Supper – all contributions of food are welcome, and we usually end up with a good selection. Everyone on the Transition & Permaculture Hull Mailing List is welcome to come along and join us at any stage. If you only want to pop in for the seed swap, that’s fine.

The AGM papers can be viewed or downloaded below; paper copies will be available at the meeting.

Film Showings


We have two film showings coming up:

The Economics of Happiness

Mon 13 February, 7.45 pm Boulevard Village Hall  

The Economics of Happiness is an inspiring feel-good documentary made in 2011. The film features many voices from across the world calling for economic change. While government and big business continue to promote globalization and corporate power, people are starting to resist those policies. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on an economics of localization.

A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity

Mon 13 March, 7.45 pm Boulevard Village Hall

 A Simpler Way : Crisis as Opportunity is a feature-length documentary made with a budget crowdfunded by supporters. Using footage taken in 2015 in a community in Gippsland, Australia,  members of the community explore and demonstrate a simpler way to live in response to global crises. Throughout the year they build tiny houses, plant veggie gardens, practice simple living, and discover the challenges of living in community.

Both films are FREE and will be followed by refreshments and discussion

Pruning workshops Jan 2017

January is the time for apple tree pruning and the Growers’ Network have organised the following sessions to which volunteers are welcome:

Thur 5 January, 9.30 am – 2pm : Pruning skill share at Pickering Road Community Orchard Map  Yvette Grindley from the orchard will be demonstrating the apple tree pruning technique, which the Growers Network are planning to film. For those of you who cannot attend but would like to learn about pruning, the short video will be shared on the Growers’ Network knowledgebase.

Sun 15 January, 10.00 am – 3 pm : Apple tree pruning session at the Millennium Orchard, Beverley Parks. Directions   There are 100+ trees which are in need of some attention. Yvette from Pickering Road Commmunity Orchard will be there to oversee the session.  By putting in some work in now, it is hoped to increase the yield of apples in the autumn. Please bring gardening gloves, tools such as secateurs if you have them, and a packed lunch.

Until the mid 20th century Hull and East Riding had an abundance of orchards and this is an attempt to renew interest in growing our own fruit.
