Visit to Green Gardens Beverley Mon 11 June

This month’s Transition & Permaculture Hull meeting will take the form of a

Visit to Green Gardens, Beverley, Mon 11 June 2018, 7.30 pm

 

This site is an interesting area of a fifth of an acre at the back of some terrraced housing on Keldgate near the centre of Beverley. It has an established orchard, some recently planted fruit trees, a kitchen garden and other veg beds, greenhouse, chickens, and provision for social events. We hope the weather will be fine for the visit and allow us to have a campfire.

Venue: Green Gardens, 163 Keldgate, Beverley HU17 8JA

We last visited two years ago and it will be good to see how it has matured. The creation of a sensory garden is in progress. Sally and Luke will show us round and we can talk about the permaculture aspects of its design.

We will also be discussing the forthcoming ‘Transition & Permaculture Day’ we are organising on Constable Community Allotment this summer. We have a provisional date of Sat 11 August and we hope to make it an event which includes lots of local groups and projects, highlighting all the exciting environmental initiatives in the area.

To get to the Green Gardens site from Hull, there is a regular half hour train service from Hull and Cottingham, and the site is about 10 mins walk from Beverley Station.

T&P Hull meeting Mon 14 May 2018

The May meeting of Transition & Permaculture Hull will take place

Mon 14 May from 7.30 pm

Constable Community Allotment, Hull HU3 3DF

Come and see the developments on the allotment, including the site of the roundhouse which is to be built this year. See how the space has been transformed from a derelict field to a productive growing area with raised beds, polytunnels, flowers, fruit, vegetables and herbs. We hope you will see examples of permaculture in practice.

We will spend some time discussing a couple of the permaculture principles in some detail, over hot drinks. (You can make your own herbal teas from herbs growing on the site.) Hopefully there will be a mix of people who know a lot about permaculture and those who wish to learn a bit more.

If the weather is poor we can shelter in the polytunnel. Hope to see you on Monday

Lausanne and Jenny

Does your group or organisation have an idea that will get food out in communities’? We are looking for creative ideas that enable people to try healthy and sustainable food in public. This might be something like running an outdoor cooking event, setting up a market stall with local produce, or inviting members of your community to a lunch made from food that would otherwise gone to waste. Your pilot project will be directly contributing to the Sustainable Food Cities Award. For more information about the award see: http://sustainablefoodcities.org/awards

Please contact bmacfadyen@goodwintrust.org for an application form. There are two cut off dates for applying, with 5 pilot activities chosen at each date.
