Garage Sale Safari

Saturday 21st May, from 10am to 2pm

Garage Sale Safari logoThe aim of the Transition Movement is to help local communities to become more sustainable and self-reliant in a world where fuel costs will continue to rise and the environment is under increasing pressure. It makes sense to us to make the most of what we have locally, and to avoid waste as much as possible. We are very much into practical action as you may have seen with our Abundance project, where we redistribute surplus fruit and other produce – a huge success and a lot of fun in 2010.

Now we have another idea for you. The Spring often brings on the urge to have a good clear out. If you are like the Transition folk, this can be a chore because you hate throwing things away if they still have some life in them. You could take them to a car boot sale, but it’s a long trek to sit in the cold in a field somewhere. Realcycle and Freegle are great, but it’s difficult to get rid of a lot of items at once. So why not get involved in a local project that gives you all the benefits of a car boot sale, but without having to leave your own driveway? It’s called a Garage Sale Safari.

In a Garage Sale Safari, as many people as possible hold a Garage Sale on the same day. Anyone who wants to run a stall outside their own home makes a donation so they can be put on a map which will be sold to show where to find each one. We would like the stall registration and map funds to go to the Friends of Kadzinuni, but obviously each individual stall holder is entirely free to do what they want with the money they take on the day. This means that local groups and other charities can also benefit.

We’ve fixed the date as Saturday 21st May, from 10am to 2pm. We’d like to hear from anyone who lives in Keyworth or belongs to a Keyworth-based group interested in having a stall. The suggested donation for inclusion on the map will be £5. If you are interested in being involved, please print, fill in and return the registration form  below, or contact Tracey on 07816899978. Can’t wait until May? Try www.nottinghamfreegle.co.uk orwww.nottingham.realcycle.co.uk

This is an informal get-together for anyone who is interested in green issues regardless of your level of ‘knowledge’.  Its aim is to enable people in the community, who share these concerns, to meet each other.

We usually meet for Green Drinks at The Tavern every third Monday each month however we have decided to have a break for the summer holiday period and will start again in September.

We will look forward to seeing you there!
