The Power of Just Doing Stuff

Are you concerned about the environment?                                     
Think more could be done to save our planet?
We’re part of a worldwide movement
Of communities taking action locally
To build a fairer, more sustainable future.

Transition Town Whitstable is part of the Transition Network 

TTW has been going since 2007 serving, in may ways, as a springbboard for local environmental projects such as the Farmer’s Market, the StreamWalk Community Garden, Blue Banana (Ethical and Sustainable Businesses), the Marine Environmental Action Group (MEAG), the Neighbourhood Plan (a people-led sustainable plan for central Whitstable) and more…

Current activities within TTW revolve primarily around the StreamWalk Community Garden and the Neighbourhood Plan, but we would like to encourage the other projects to continue to use this site and our Facebook page  to communicate their activities and link up with each other. 

We also run a stall on the occasional weekend at the Whitstable Junior car park, selling home-grown seeds and plants and home-made jams, chutneys etc. 

Please contact us if you have any local environmental/sustainability project you’d like to get off the ground or if you want to get involved in any existing project. We have a constitution and a bank account which may prove useful to any new group starting out.
