What’s on in March
There’s a load going on in March with Transition Darebin and some really exciting things going on in Darebin itself. We’re going to be making some changes to the email lists and also some exciting developments to upgrade our website and social media communication. What does this mean? Well it means that there’s never been a better time to get involved with a TD event, or take that next step and get more involved in making the Darebin that you want in the future.
Each month Transition Darebin runs three food swaps which are a great way to deal with excess from the garden, share seeds or even swap some excess jam, preserve, knowledge or skill for something that someone else has.
Northcote: 11th March @ Chalice, 251 High Street Northcote from 11-noon
Reservoir: 18th March @ Cnr Chedder Rd and Broadway, Reservoir from 10-11
South Preseton: 25th March @ Cnr. Oakover and High Street, Preston from 11-noon

Transition In the Pub: Good Wood and Principled Paper
Wednesday 15th March
7:30 – 9:30 @ Francesca’s Bar (222 High Street, Northcote)
Transition In the Pub is about getting out and talking about the issues that matter with anybody who cares to listen whilst enjoying a cold beer or glass of something fizzy! This Month we’re teaming up with the Newlands Friends of the Forest to present Dr. Chris Taylor, research fellow at the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute of Melbourne University. Dr. Chris is going to take us on a journey to find out more about the forestry industry. To get an insight into where our wood and paper products come from and how we can make choices that aren’t derived from our critically endangered Victorian native forest.
Our Apple Tree..’Tree Bee’
12th March from 1-4pm
@Our Apple Tree (Cnr. Beavers Road and Herbert street, Northcote)
Our Apple Tree is a small community garden that once used to house the cottage of the level crossing boom gate operator. The cottage is gone but his favorite tree remains surrounded by flowers, veggie beds and some great examples of what can be done to make a small community garden from nothing.
Every month we have a small working bee and love to have helpers along to learn, dig and take ownership of our shared space. Kids are welcome.
