Transition Velcro: Opportunities to stick to
Saturday 13th December: Transition Darebin Food Swap
Melbourne’s event that stops the nation – Transition Darebin’s Food Swap is on Saturday 13th December 11-12 at Chalice garden, 251 High St Northcote. We will swap and give away edible and plantable materials – leaves, fruits, roots, seeds, seedlings, cuttings, ideas, techniques, observations, plus recipes and crafts to utilise what we grow. All welcome, so tell all your friends and neighbours, and see you at the garden!
Sunday 14th December: Our Apple Tree: Crafternoon and Working Bee
Last month we had a great session channelling ‘Bob the Builder’ as we constructed seats and a table for the tree. This month ‘we’re getting crafty’ with our very first Apple Tree Crafternoon.
The highlight will be a paper making demonstration as well as a craft table to upcycle your old cards into mini-works of art. We’ll also be livening up the seats with as much bright outdoor paint as we can find, making a handprint sign for the space, searching for berries and just generally getting into the real festive spirit of being part of a community.
Of course we don’t have a patent on creativity so if you have a skill or something that you think would add to the garden then please come on down and show us how it’s done!
When: 14th December 2014 2:00 – 5:00
Where: Our Apple Tree (corner of Herbert Street and Beavers Road)
What to bring: clothes to get dirty, old Christmas (or any other) cards, any leftover bright outdoor paint and whatever else you’d like to spend an afternoon crafting. If you’d like to something to share for afternoon tea would also be appreciated (but not essential)
