JANUARY – 2012

22nd – TT Vallei Plantenzaden Ruilen/ Seed Swap, Wageningen, 19:00-22:00

(English & map below)
Locatie: Hess van Suchtelenweg (Generaal Foulkesweg), Wageningen, het is ’t gebouwtje met plat dak achter Microbiologie en voormalig Unitas, trap af naar beneden – vrijwillige bijdrage voor koffie en thee. (zie hieronder voor een locatiekaart).
Transition Town Vallei organiseert een avond waarop groenten-, kruiden- of bloemenzaden en bollen/knollen kunnen worden geruild in onze ruimte aan de Hess van Suchtelenweg. Deel je overvloed aan zaden en bollen (uit de winkel of zelf geoogst), en kom ruilen. Neem je zaden mee in bakjes en zorg dat je iets mee neemt, waar je de geruilde zaden in mee terug kan nemen. Evenals pen en papier om de nieuwe zaden eenmaal thuis uit elkaar te kunnen houden. Huisregels:
  • Brengen en uitstallen van je zaden kan op woensdagavond tussen 19 en 20 uur. We ruilen vanaf 20 uur.
  • Schrijf op de bakjes/zakjes die je meeneemt, de soort, herkomst, jaartal waarin geoogst, en evt je naam.
  • Neem om teleurstelling te voorkomen alleen de zaden mee die geruild kunnen worden, dus die op mogen. Laat de rest thuis.
  • Pak geen grote hoeveelheden zaden mee naar huis. Er zijn ook anderen die graag wat zaden willen ruilen na jou.
  • Kom alleen als je daadwerkelijk zaden te ruilen hebt. Als je geen zaden mee neemt, heb je ook niks te ruilen.

Transition Towns Vallei meeting-room location

(English) On Wednesday 22nd February, Transition Town Vallei is organising a plant seed swapping event at Hess van Suchtelenweg (off Generaal Foulkesweg, behind UNITAS) for anyone who has vegetable, herb or flower seeds, bulbs/tubers, to spare and swap. Bring your seeds in little containers and be sure to take something in which to carry your new seeds home. Also take pen and paper to remember what new seeds you have collected. Voluntary contribution for drinks.
Rules:
  • Bring and exhibit your seeds between 19:00 and 20:00. We start swapping the seeds at 20:00.
  • Write on the seed containers, plant name, species, harvest place, year of harvest, and your name if you want.
  • To prevent disappointment, only bring those seeds that you can spare. Leave the rest at home.
  • Do not take home too many seeds. Other people would also like to swap seeds after you.
  • Only come if you really have seeds to swap. If you don’t bring seeds, there will be nothing to swap for you.

Van 1982 tot en met 1990 werkte hij bij de Adviesgroep Vegetatiebeheer die onder leiding stond van Prof. dr. Piet Zonderwijk. Bij alle adviezen werd steeds volop rekening gehouden met de insectenfauna, in het bijzonder de bloembezoekende insecten.

Project Review Meeting at the TTpermatuin:

This is a meeting for all those who have been involved with the project to get feedback and any new ideas. If you can’t make it, please feel welcome to email your thoughts and ideas to ttpermatuin@gmail.com so we don’t miss your insight. The rough order of business is:
  1. Getting reactions on the project so far
  2. What people feel they are getting/want to get from the project  
  3. Any new ideas…
  4. Who wants to be involved (and how) as the garden develops into more maintenance than construction.
  5. Can we use the garden as a base for the permaculture group to do other activities in the neighbourhood?
  6. Organising visits to other Transition Towns and permaculture projects
