Community Gardening Round up

Come and join in!

Community Gardening is really taking off in Whitstable. The raised beds outside the library are full to bursting and the Stream Walk Community garden is being transformed. But we still need lots of helpers to keep them going. Especially as both have been entered in the Whitstable in Bloom competition. Come and drop in to our sessions, meet new friends and feel part of these exciting projects.

  • Stream Walk has sessions on Tuesdays 12 – 4pm and the 3rd Saturday of each month 10am – 2pm. Tea provided! The Community Garden can be found along the Stream Walk footpath between Cromwell Road and Old Bridge Rd. in Whitstable. There is no need to book, you can simply turn up.
  • The Library raised beds next session is on 26 June, late morning to early afternoon.

See you there.

UK ministers ignored ‘peak oil’ warnings, report shows

“Report reveals threat of civil unrest from energy shortages, which has been played down as ‘alarmist’ by ministers”, says Terry Macalister in The Guardian today.

“The government was warned by its own civil servants two years ago that there could be “significant negative economic consequences” to the UK posed by near-term “peak oilenergy shortages.” Read the full article by clicking on the link above or go straight to the report.

Don’t forget, we can’t rely on our government, whoever is in charge, to prepare us for the coming energy shortage. We have to do it ourselves and getting involved in your local Transition Town initiative is a great way of doing this.
