Transition Kids

Here are some of the things Transition Kids education group have worked on in 2012:

         . The introduction of several Ecofuntastic after school clubs in Camden Schools

         . The creation of a fab bug hotel at The Fruitery

         . The creation of two fab minature eco houses (see news)

         . The creation of our chicken wire sculptures coming soon filled with plastic!!!

         . Our carrier couture, anti carrier bag show

         . A recycled pantomine called, 'The Queen Bee.' Acting was a bit wooden!

          . Willow sculptures

  • Building ManCan, a 7ft robot farmer made from recycled packaging (see photo). This was a project done with local artist Pandora Vaughan aimed at discussing with children how we can reduce, re-use and recycle waste. So far ManCan has visited Thornton’s Budgens on Haverstock Hill, the Swiss Cottage Library and England’s Lane Bookshop.
  • Making Music Picnic. Local children gathered on Primrose Hill to make imaginative musical instruments from recycling waste, wooden pallets and anything else that inspired them. They then performed for the crowd!
  • Summer Veg Out Stall at Parliament Hill Farmers’ Market. Local school gardening clubs displayed their fabulous home-grown produce, and raised funds for their school.

Man Can

The Man Can tour continues...

This year Man Can has met over 1,000 primary school kids at 5 local school assemblies. He has also been on tour in Englands Lane bookshop and Budgens, followed by a 8 week Summer holiday at Swiss Cottage library. His message to  encourage kids to cut down on packaging continues to be heard at Kentish Town library, where he is currently on tour! Next stop Queens Crescent and Holborn libraries!
