A group of dedicated individuals living in the area, committed to creating a postive and sustainable future, met last week to litter pick and prepare roadside pieces of scrub to receive sunflower plants which local people have been encouraged to nurture and grow from seed. It will give a lift to our very urban environment.
An iraqi family look out of their window and spot the group. Before long the man has come out bearing gifts – a tray with refreshing glasses of juice and biscuits . Hospitality offered to the ‘hosts’ by the ‘guest.’
Very welcome, indeed.
Transition initiatives across the world are raising awareness of peak oil and climate change. In my city the local branch seeks to create a positive and sustainable future.
