We're grassroots Heathrow residents proving that communities less dependent on oil can be more resilient, stronger and happier. We take direct action on climate change and shrinking supplies of cheap energy by transitioning to a post-oil, community-led future for the Heathrow villages.

Spring is here so we’re putting together a season of workshops and events at Grow Heathrow and we’d love it if you were involved.

Do you have a skill you can offer? Would you like to run an event at Grow Heathrow?

We’re looking for people and organisations to offer workshops, events, performances, skill-shares, talks or just whatever it is that you do best, that can run at Grow Heathrow or in the wider villages between April and May.

If you would like to contribute to furthering the aims of Transition Heathrow, or know someone else that might, then please email us with a proposal of what, when and how, by Sunday 29th March to info@transitionheathrow.com. Or give us a ring on 07706602284.

Education for the Future.

Regardless of the outcome of this year’s general election, or the misguided findings of the Davies Commission, the Heathrow villages have a vibrant future and will resist the expansion of Heathrow to the end. The celebrations will be a chance for us to connect with each other, a chance to cultivate a united front against the disastrous proposal for Heathrow’s 3rd runway in this crucial year.

Following the attempted eviction of Grow Heathrow on the 15th August, a free coach, 30 spaces, will leave Grow Heathrow towards Blackpool where we will continue to fight for corporate, social and economic justice at the Reclaim the Power camp. So you can stand in solidarity against airport expansion, and still make it to the camp to be part of the fight against fracking.

There are still some places left for both days of Starhawk’s workshop “Making Rituals That Matter” 2&3 Aug. There will also be a free community ritual on the Saturday evening, all welcome but places are limited, especially if the weather is wet and we need to work indoors, so please let Sylvia or Grow Heathrow know if you are planning on being there. Starhawk is a long term political activist, permaculturalist and witch – see her website www.starhawk.org for more about her work.

Please note that the entire event will be drug and alcohol free. This is for various good reasons, which Sylvia will be happy to discuss more if anyone wants. Price for the workshops is on a sliding scale of £25 – £75 per day, but get in touch if you can’t afford that, no-one will be turned away for lack of money. Please get in touch to book, or if you have any questions: sylviatriandafylla@yahoo.co.uk or 07752 660177.
