    I am contacting you on behalf of the RSA East of England Region.
    I wonder if you have any RSA Fellows in your Group?
    We are planning a meeting in St Albans on Saturday 31st October and would be interested to know if you have any contacts with Transition Norwich and Cambridge both of which we have contacts with.
    We have taken sustainability as our theme and wish to promote groups like yourselves.
    I would be grateful if you would contact me with a view to possibly being involved in our meeting in October.
    best wishes

  2. Hi Gladys,

    Thank you for contacting us. See my reply by email.
    And sorry for the delay. August is our holiday month.

    Kind regards

  3. Walk down many a suburban street at this time of year and you will see trees stuffed with ripe fruit – much of which will simply rot and go to waste.
    Autumn is harvest time, and both city and countryside are awash with an abundance of apples, pears, plums and blackberries. Fat red and green apples hang heavy in private gardens and roadside verges, Urban greenbelt land sparkles with the ruby glow of ripening berries. Nature’s bounty is everywhere to see, from countryside tracks to the wilder corners of council-owned greenbelt.
    There is a free and accessible source of fresh and scrumptious fruit, waiting to be picked. And surprisingly, much of it is left to ripen, wither, fall and rot, providing sustenance only for wasps and rats.
    The St Albans Urban Harvest Project will comprise a voluntary organisation that picks unwanted fruit from the city’s gardens and public spaces, and disperses it to worthy causes such as Sure Start children’s centres, shelters for homeless people and juicing facilities.
    The best fruit can be given whole, and the less appetising can be turned into chutney, jam and juice. Volunteers can also take some for themselves, and the rest is left for the owners of the trees.
    The project also emphasise wider environmental issues. It illustrates concepts like food miles, seasonality and rediscovering old varieties. It’s getting people away from the idea that blackberries have to come in little boxes, or that apples have to be this perfectly round red thing bought in a supermarket.

    How about it?………………..
