Transition Haverfordwest and Hilton Court Gardens are joining forces this weekend, to provide activities designed to demonstrate a sustainable future: organic food, renewable energy, recycling, and lots of activities for kids.
Tracy Whistance, from “Squirrel Lodge”, will guide children (and adults) on a foraging trail. The Darwin Centre will host pond dipping sessions while adults can relax with a gong bath or a meditation session or go wild in a zumba session.
The Green Fayre is the most high profile part of Transition Haverfordwest's mission to make Haverfordwest a better place to be. Sitting alongside Orchard Mawr and Be PART Of It, Green Fayre aims to be fun yet inspiring. “Just do it,” said Transition Network's founder, Rob Hopkins.
Rachel Scott of Hilton Court Gardens – located off the A485 near Roch - said: “We are really excited about hosting this free event to walkers and cyclists. There's a minimal £2 charge for car parking. It coincides with National Children's Day on May 11 and our gardens will provide a great place to be adventurous, safely.”
“This is such an exciting opportunity for people to experience new ideas about recycling and energy saving while their kids have a great time in the woods and ponds or just playing in one of the free workshops,” said Transition Member Sally Davies. “With many local musicians, dancers, about 40 stalls and a range of workshops, it should never be dull!”
Green Fayre is one of Transition Haverfordwest's initiatives which aim to re-energise and re-localise Haverfordwest.
