Transition ‘foodies’ wanted for pilot scenario workshop

 I’m currently doing a PhD at Queens Belfast, researching post-peak oil scenarios and risk management of city-region food security.  As part of the research, I’m planning to conduct ‘scenario workshops’ in Derry, Omagh and Belfast.  Each workshop will involve about 15 people, and will address the following questions: •          What are the potential impacts of peak oil on food security ?•          How robust and resilient are current policies and practice ? Can they be adapted           …See More

There has been some scepticism whether there would be any public support for it.

Comfrey - every transitioner should have some..

Hi - I still have industrial quantities of comfrey plants for sale, despite having sold 70 plants already. They are non-seeding, so I think they must be the Bocking 14 variety developed by the Henry Doubleday Association. I'm selling them for £/€ 5 for 10 plants, and can deliver in Derry/Inishowen area. All money goes towards event costs incurred by Transition Derry. Comfrey is a wonderful organic fertilizer and healing plant. The links below provide information on the medicinal, horticultural…See More

Comfrey plants for sale

To raise funds for Transition Derry I'm selling Russian Comfrey plants - used by organic growers as green fertilizer, they also have powerful medicinal properties. I have several hundred small plants I've grown from cuttings, & I'm selling them for £1 each, £5 for 10, and concessions on even larger quantities. All proceeds will go to Transition Derry. If you'd like some, please contact me on 07812454356 or waynefoord@hotmail.com.
