Watch Eleanor Shipman’s film online.
You are invited to a screening of a short film made with local residents to mark the end of the Play Swap project.

Summer Gardening Club: Making Lavender Biscuits
We got a recipe for lavender biscuits from the internet http://allrecipes.com/recipe/lavender-shortbread-cookies/ and got started.
Here is Ellie smelling the wonderful lavender
And here we are all hard at work beating the mix. Nathaniel said that ‘baking is hard’ when he was doing this!
|tiny alpine strawberries wear their seeds on the outside|
|poached egg flowers loved by insects|
|the young lavender smells slightly antiseptic and medicinal at the moment|
|towering leek aliums|
|the first raspberries from new plants|
|this box was planted with nasturtiums but has been hosting rogue borage, tomatillo and some sort of brassica too|
|we’ve removed the fruit from the first year apple trees to help them get stronger for next year|
|one of the wildflowers planted for bees|
Is it time to set up Transition Elephant?
Transition is an independent movement made up of local communities getting ready for climate change, peak oil and other massive changes. There are dozens of transition towns in London but currently no Transition communities in the North Southwark area.
So would we like a transition elephant? And if so, what would like it to do?
Here are the details:
Thursday 21st June, 7pm – late
Pembroke Pocket Garden
(inside Pembroke House if bad weather)
Stephen Reid, new economics foundation
Bring and Share supper (home grown especially welcome)
Music for Life UK
Please extend this invite to friends that live near Elephant and Castle that may not have been invited. THANKS!
