Transition Town Honiton brings together a range of people from the community who are working on three different projects at present. The Community Orchard group are planning to create an orchard in town and the Sustainable Saturdays group run a monthly community event in the Mackarness Hall. The third group plants, grows and maintains areas in town like the herb wall on New Street and trees they planted last year in The Glen.
All three established groups welcome more volunteers to grow and develop their projects and a fourth group is being looked into if enough people show an interest. This new group would try to find solutions to waste issues in Honiton, and could potentially set up community plastic and cardboard collections. Our neighbours over at Sustainable Crediton have organised plastic recycling – see www.sustainablecrediton.org.uk and would be willing to come and talk to us about how they do it.
