Composting nappies

Does anyone have any experience about composting nappies? A friend of mine has been composting the liners but has heard that you shouldn't do it once the baby starts on solids, is that correct?Any help welcome, thanksNickySee More

Heart and Soul Group

Personal and planetary wellbeing is at the heart of Transition.  When we are in right relationship with ourselves and the planet, we become part of the flow and rhythm of life. "Wellbeing", as well as looking at the inner processes that help us to embrace change, aims to help us find our own rhythm and come to understand that whatever we do to ourselves, we do to the planet.  Therefore in taking better care of ourselves we make a valuable contribution towards the good of the whole.See More

Re-skilling library

I picked up a great book on candlemaking today in a charity shop and was going to pass it on to Donna and Mark, who are just getting started in the world of wax - and this got me thinking, how about starting up a simple re-skilling book library?We could compile a list of books that Re-skilling group members own and would be prepared to lend out to other members, and keep a note of who has got what, maybe arranging to bring or return books at our Re-skilling meetings?Nothing beats learning a…See More

Pumpkin seeds

If you're making a pumpkin lantern for Halloween this weekend, don't throw away the pumpkin seeds: they are absolutely delicious toasted in the oven. One simple recipe is to toss them in a single layer in a baking tray with a few knobs of butter and a little (or a lot) of salt, and then roast for around 45 minutes in a slow oven. Stir occasionally, leave to cool down and then eat greedily.Of course if you live with a seed saver, you're going to have to battle it out. To roast or to save? Best…See More

Elderberry cordial

Elderberries will still be around for the next few weeks, so why not try making some elderberry cordial? You can dilute it with still or sparkling water to make a refreshing drink - it tastes like a cross between blackcurrant and grape juice. Elderberry cordial isn't just a delicious drink - it also has proven anti-viral properties, along with Vitamin C, antioxidents and flavanoids. A couple of tablespoons a day is an…See More

Transition jam

I've been busy making jam over the last few weeks for myself and a couple of friends. I have one of those giant jam-making pans, they have over-laden blackberry bushes, and plum and damson trees. They come round with arms full of fruit and empty glass jars, and I make a big batch of jam. We sit and drink tea while the kitchen fills with that gorgeous nearly-autumn scent of hot blackberry jam, and we all share the booty at the end.This is just a casual arrangement that we've fallen into this…See More

Worthing tomatoes

I am ridiculously happy with my little tomato harvest today. Look at all of these! Some were grown in an old Worthing recycling kerbside box, but most have come from two incredibly productive tomato plants which I have been growing in a hanging basket. They're a tumbling tomato variety, which like to dangle downwards: perfect for hanging baskets.This started me thinking - if I can grow all of these tomatoes in a tiny basket in a shady backyard (and forget to water them for days on end, too),…See More
