10-10-10 Global Work Party TF Event (Press Release)

On Sunday around the world, groups of individuals celebrated 10-10-10 as part of what is thought to be the biggest day of positive climate action ever – from one end of the planet to the other, people joined together for a Global Work Party of 7,347 events in 188 countries. Several events took place around Falmouth with projects including tree planting.

One event attended by members of Transition Falmouth and other environmental groups was held at a Tree project near Treverva.

Sanjay, Head Chef at Greenbank Hotel said

“we visited a Forest garden, foraged for blackberries and apples while soaking in the natural atmosphere and appreciated a Cob Oven made from earth, reminding me of how blessed we are to be on this planet. If we all play our little part, in keeping the planet green, it will be a great gift to pass on to the generations to come – just like the walnut tree”.

Sanjay also produced an apple chutney recipe for the event, to be found on www.transitionfalmouth.org.uk. Apples were further celebrated with a shared tea of local apples and cheese with apple crumble and juice.

Transition Falmouth has a special interest in the date of 10/10/10 as at 10am on 10th October 2006 the first meeting was held in Falmouth Council Chambers. The group has been active for the past 4 years promoting projects and the skills for a positive future for the area.
