Bill Quay Farm
South Tyneside and Sunderland Transition Town
South of Tyne Transition Town and Bill Quay Farm will be holding Gateshead's first community green fest on the 25th June 2011, from 11 o'clock to 4 o'clock. It is going to be family and learning focused with some folky bands, lots of stalls, educational activities (including stalls where you can have a go at making things and an interactive exercise on how we can save money and the environment by using less oil), and some talks in a tent. The Farm is close to Pelaw metro station and is also a pleasant cycle ride from Newcastle. There will be an information stall where you can get advice on the different activities on offer and volunteers providing information around the site.
Groups and organisations getting involved will include:
North East Transition Town Coordinator's network
Newcastle Community Greenfest
The Summer Tumblers (band)
'Folk along Phil'
Pottery, textiles and cake makers
The Green Party
Gateshead Community Agricultural association
The Food Chain
The North East Permaculture Network
