Transition Malvern Hills and Malvern Hills Repair Café are working together to organise the first Green fair in Malvern – the Malvern Hills Communities Fair!
The aim of this one day event is to raise awareness of and celebrate local environmental initiatives, particularly the efforts of those individuals, voluntary groups and businesses who are contributing to the sustainability of the Malvern Hills communities.
Malvern Hills Communities Fair will take place on Saturday 21 September 2013 at Malvern Cube. There will be themed areas based on different environmental issues such as waste, energy, transport and food and a variety of different workshops, presentations, children’s activities and entertainment will take place throughout the day. Stalls will be available for a small charge.
We would welcome more volunteers to join us on the organising committee as we want to ensure that this will be an event that Malvern will remember!
If you could spare some time to get involved, please call 01684 892581 or email [sf_email]email@example.com[/sf_email]

Do you have a dream of living in an environmentally-friendly house?
Perhaps you would like to be involved in designing and building your own eco home? Are you interested in buying some land and working together with a group of people who also have this dream?
There are a few of us who have met through Transition Malvern Hills who share a dream of living simply and sustainably, leaving a small footprint on the Earth. If you also have this dream, I would like to hear from you. Please email Jan at [sf_email]firstname.lastname@example.org[/sf_email]

From Paraguay, the remarkable Landfill Harmonic all play instruments reclaimed/scrap made from the waste site where they live. Here's a teaser for a full-length film coming soon.
(And an excuse to try embedding video on the revamped website.)
In case you don't see a video just above, here's a link to the film on Vimeo.

From Guy Tomlinson:
I came across composting toilets at Grand Designs Live & soon as I can afford it, am looking to purchase a Separett Villa for all the ecological reasons. I wondered if other people in the Transition movement might also be interested in purchasing one for the same reasons?
If a few of us were interested, I’m sure I could negotiate a good discount ~ maybe 10% (or more depending on how many were being ordered) plus free delivery (if they were being delivered to one collection point in Malvern?).
If this is of any interest or you would like more information please contact Guy on 07986 102 404 by 30th November.
