Transition Town Brixton
 Together towards a better future: Newsletter September 2016
TTB 'New Economy Group' 
Monday 12 September 6.30pm, Impact Hub Brixton,
back of POPBrixton, 49 Brixton Station Road. SW9 8PQ
 

FREE. Please bring some food to share.
Calling all Brixtonians and Lambethians who are interested in or in any way engaged in the ECONOMY. (That's all of you by the way)

Do you want to see a more interconnected, game-changing local economy? Can you imagine a place where banks invest solely in local projects? A place where we own our local supermarkets, cafes, libraries, banks, high streets? 

The group that brought you Brixton Pound is back! 

Join us on Monday 12th September at Impact Hub Brixton's Open Project Night – to explore what a new local economy could look like and what we can do to make it happen! We will hear about the ongoing Bank of Lambeth project. We will be relaunching the TTB REconomy and Enterprise Group to think and do towards a new economy locally - we might call it the 'New Economy Group'. 

Come along and get stuck in alongside some amazing people.

The facebook event is here. Please share and invite people who should be there.

There are lots of great local food surplus projects. How can we collaborate to make best use of surplus food? How can we turn the waste we can't avoid producing into a valuable resource, for example as compost to nourish further food growing? co-hosted by Brixton Pound and Incredible Edible Lambeth

We heartily recommend these workshops run by Social Landscapes. Permaculture - designing to work with the forces that operate - is the foundation of Transition thinking. The 2 day Permaculture Introduction could change your life! Also Fruit Tree Care, Natural Pest Control, Growing Winter Vegetables and Soil and Compost.
