Transition & Permaculture Hull is organing an event in September to celebrate Permaculture. As 2017 is the Hull City of Culture year we are calling it:
‘Hull City of Permaculture’
Sat 16 September 2017
from 11 am to 4 pm
at Constable School Field & Community Allotment
There will be workshops given by permaculturists from different areas, and from Hull. There will be a variety of stalls, all with a focus on sustainability. There will be live music, children’s activities and refreshments.
We plan to involve various green groups from the local area, and hope that it will be a great networking opportunity and a chance to find out lots of things you didn’t know.
If you want to get involved, please contact Lausanne Tranter on 07816 141169 or come along to the next meeting of Transition and Permaculture Hull, to be held on Monday 10 July at 7.45 pm at Boulevard Village Hall, Hull HU3 3EL.
This meeting will be devoted to organising the Hull City of Permaculture event to be held on Sat 16 September. Quite a few people have indicated that they would like to be involved and we hope you can attend this planning meeting. We are looking for potential stall holders, helpers, offers of workshops, etc but anybody who is interested can come along to the meeting. If you have more ideas on how to make this event a success please do come along.
We will also try and devote a bit of time to planning the annual Family Fun Day on Constable Street Field, which this year will be held on Wed 9 August.
There will be refreshments at the meeting.
Lausanne Tranter, Project Manager at Constable Community Allotment, says:
We are going to build a cob-oven on Constable Community Allotment on the weekend of 24th/25th June.
We will be starting to tread the cob on Sat 17th June in preparation.
Some of you will have attended the Cob-oven build at the YWT wildlife garden at Pearson Park a couple of years ago. Maybe you’d like to bring your skills? Others may know nothing about the process – we’d love lots of people to come along and learn about cob-making and its uses. It’s fun!!
We will be providing drinks and snacks.
- The cob-treading on the 17th starts at 11.00 am
- The cob-oven building on the 24th/25th starts at 10.00 am
- You are welcome to arrive later in the day!
- Constable Community Allotment is at Constable St, Hull HU3 3DF
For more details ring Lausanne on 07816141169
Wear old clothes and footwear as cob is mucky stuff!!
Hope to see you there
The next Transition & Permaculture Hull event will be a Permablitz held from 7pm on Monday 12 June 2017 at Constable Community Allotment, Constable St, Hull HU3 3DF
‘Many hands make light work’
A Permablitz is a session where people get together on a site and set to on tasks which need doing (working as far as possible within a permaculture ethos). The evening session at Constable Community Allotment will focus on all the little jobs which need doing, and having lots of people mucking in together can make this a fun event. Please come and lend a hand if you can. Tools and gloves are provided but you may wish to bring your own.
If you haven’t yet visited the allotment, take this opportunity to come along and be impressed with what we’ve done so far!
Tea and biscuits will be available, bring cake to share if you can. If it is raining heavily the event will be postponed. More information from Lausanne Tranter on 07816 141169
BAMEEN in Hull will be running a free 6-week programme starting in June, which offers unemployed women an introduction to the world of engineering, and uses aquaponics to teach engineering principles:
Transition & Permaculture Hull has arranged a second visit to Bakersville Allotment in Hull
On Monday 15th May instead of meeting at Boulevard Village Hall we will be visiting “Bakersville” allotment on the Newland Avenue site. This comprises an NHS project with well-established fruit and vegetables grown by volunteers following Permaculture principles, and is well worth a visit!
We may get the chance to look at other interesting plots whilst we are there. We will meet on the Newland site by the gate between 7.00 and 7.30 pm, and afterwards we will probably retire to a nearby pub for drinks and a chat.
The site is situated on Newland Allotments, at the end of Tavistock Street, Hull HU5 2LJ. Bakersville Allotment is the first site on right as you go through the gates.
Hope to see you there
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.
