March Newsletter: Film-watching, food-growing, fossil-hunting

Happy spring! We’ve enjoyed a few glorious days, and it’s definitely time to get planting and growing. We have been given the use of a huge bed at the Heath Strange garden on top of the Royal Free hospital car park, just on the corner of Pond Street and Haverstock Hill, and we’re planning to plant flowers for children to pick, maize, pumpkins and beans (the Three Sisters of Native American tradition). Read on to find out how to get involved in this and our other growing sites.

Our first “Mend-In” skill-sharing session on sewing, mending and darning at the Steele’s pub was a huge success on Sunday, with all kinds of items (dresses, sweaters, socks, trousers, a backpack) not only mended but also embellished and made even more beautiful. Read more and see photos here.

Another first will be our short film evening next Tuesday, also upstairs at the Steele’s. Don’t miss an exciting programme of hilarious, infuriating and inspiring short films on an eco theme, plus a chance to meet Transition Belsize members and find out how you can get involved in our local projects.
