TD Convivial Kitchen

Transition Port Phillip shared an interesting idea at the recent Transition Towns Victorian Convergence. They set up a monthly convivial kitchen catch up, where members meet at a commercial kitchen and demonstrate a favourite dish, then eat it.  Any takers for this idea in Darebin?  If you would like to help organising the catch ups let me know otherwise feel free to register interest in coming along or demonstrating.

We’ve already had an offer for a kimchi demonstration, but we don’t have to do super hard things, they could be easy like the pizza dough I just found out about that uses two ingredients yoghurt and flour!

Contact ecoze@ixa.net.au if you would like to register interest in participating, or demonstrating or organising.

First TD Gathering for 2013

For our first gathering of 2013, we are teaming up with Urban Reforestation, who are hosting a workshop called “The Art of 522310_249619015161542_82743805_nCommunity Gardening” at the Old Apple Tree. It will be more of a discussion than a one-way workshop – people with all levels of experience and interest are welcome – whether you are an old hand or just finding out about community gardens.

If anyone has not come across the Apple Tree before, it’s a bit of a local icon. A very big, very old apple tree right next to the railway line which has been lovingly documented by photographer Cat Wilson, and adopted and given a new lease on life by locals including TD members and people in the neighbourhood, most recently led by Urban Reforestation members, who have spruced up the area, adding seating, a planter box and other plants. And started a facebook page for the Apple Tree.

After the workshop there will be a hands-on working bee, giving the apple tree and surrounds some TLC.

And then a picnic which will double as our first TD gathering of the year. Perhaps we may even bring out the TD banner, which still needs a little more painting to be complete, and features our apple tree inspired by… you guessed it – the Old Apple Tree.
