Get to know the people and Ideas of the transition town network, and get involved in the transition of The Pijp. It is free! and everyone is welcome, feel free to drop by with any information, or home made biscuits.

12.00: Transition tea on the ecological experimental garden Swomp Rustenburgerstraat 438/440, The pijp, Amsterdam. As well as helping with the gardening, you can get an introduction to the Ideas of transition Towns, and meet the people busy with this and other related projects.

This transition tea, we will give a practical introduction to worm composting, show you how you can make compost from your kitchen waste with little more than empty milk carton, and then show some short movies about composting in the Molli (Vanostadestraat 55 hs)

We hope to see you there.

      We are having every first sunday of the month from 13h a garden working day. That is maybe a good moment to learn more about permculture. If you want to visit us, we can make an appointment on, to be sure somebody is at home.
