The next Transition & Permaculture Hull event is a visit to Green Gardens in Beverley on Monday 22 July 2019 at 7 pm.

Join us on a look round this fifth of an acre site, developed along permaculture lines, at the back of terraced housing on Keldgate. We’ve paid a couple of previous visits to this evolving site and there’s always something new to see or hear about. If the weather permits, we may have a campfire. If you have not already eaten you may want to bring a dish and join us in a bring and share supper.

Green Gardens is at 163 Keldgate, Beverley HU17 8JA. The site is ten minutes or so walk from Beverley Station. Trains from Hull are half hourly. One leaves Hull at 18.33, calls at Cottingham 18.40 and arrives Beverley at 18.46.

Here is a link to the report of an earlier visit, to give you an idea of the site if you have not visited before  http://www.transitionhull.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/06/GreenGardenAug16.pdf

Trees

Urban Tree Challenge Fund

The Urban Tree Challenge Fund (UTCF) seeks to plant at least 130,000 trees. It provides funding to support the planting and establishment of large and small trees in urban and peri-urban areas in England. The support is competitive and targeted at projects that can provide the greatest environmental, social and economic benefits in our towns and cities. Public bodies, community groups, charities and non-government organisations, individuals and private companies who provide matched funding are eligible to apply.
