Transition Southampton believes in a positive, sustainable, community imagined future. We work with local communities, organisations and local governments to create positive, sustainable, community-based solutions that tackle climate change and energy scarcity. We are part of the international Transition Network, and have a range of active and past projects across food, energy, waste, transport and the built environment.

Project: Repair Cafe and more Bike Repairs

After our November event had to be cancelled because of lockdown, we are now able to put on 2 extra events. These will be Sats 12 and 19 December. These free sessions will run at St Denys Community Centre Please note that the sessions will be run outdoors near the bike stands. Social distancing will be in place and there will be no access to the building for customers. For more information please email us at repaircafe[at]transitionsouthampton.org . Booking is not necessary but you can register your attendance on our Facebook page, which will help us assess demand. Our Bike KItchen mechanics will also be running free bike doctors outside The Hub Cycleworks, Shirley Rd on See https://southamptonbikekitchen.wordpress.com/

Project: Green Gardening Consultancy

Our green garden consultancy program continues for those within walking distance of Portswood, provided social distancing is possible. Our retro-fit “rat proof composting” research also continues. If you have rats in the garden and are interested in trialling a rat-proof bin or compost sleeve or live within walking distance of Portswood and would like a wildlife garden consultation see our Green Gardening Consultancy page.
