Transition Bradford

T Bfd, Contact details

Transition Bradford are part of a worldwide movement engaging local communities to create a vibrant, resilient future in response to the twin challenges of peak oil and climate change.

Transition Initiatiatives are a network of places following a model started in Totnes by Rob Hopkins who has a background in Permaculture. The initiative in Bradford followed a visit with a presentation by the co-founder of the network, Ben Brangwyn.

At the moment the Transition Bradford group are concentrating on the Horton Community Farm and annual Fruitshare projects both of which you can get involved in, see below.

If you have your own ideas for Transition projects and want to contact like minded people you can join the Transition Bradford google group to contact everyone:

Fruitshare

Do you have trees or bushes with more fruit or nuts than you know what to do with?

We do the harvesting, you take what you want and the rest we give away to the local community!

Project run entirely by volunteers. If you are interested in helping or know of groups that can make use of the produce please use the online contact form at:

Horton Community Farm

Transforming 1.75 acres of the underused Cecil Avenue Allotments into a thriving permaculture centre for affordable local food, environmental education and horticultural therapy.

At the moment, the site on Cecil Avenue Allotments is mainly overgrown jungle with the derelict remains of glass and brick buildings. So far we've removed over 22 tonnes of rubbish.  Our exciting plans for the future include a community area with starter plots, a straw-bale building, a large edible forest garden, a nature area and polytunnels.
