Welcome to Transition Horsham!

Transition Horsham is a community group of local Horsham area residents who are concerned about the effects that climate change and other environmental and economic problems will have on our lives in the near and medium future. We support the ideas and practical solutions of the Transition Towns movement set up by Rob Hopkins in 2006 in Totnes, Devon, where people like us wanted to do something positive to build in flexibility and resilience to their community, so that we not only survive future changes, but thrive.

So Transition Horsham is all about building community networks, sharing and learning new skills. It is about cutting our carbon emissions through establishing new community based ways of producing energy and heating our houses efficiently, reducing our individual carbon footprint, recycling and reducing waste. It is about growing healthy local produce, encouraging local biodiversity through seed swaps, mending clothes and knitting, baking bread and making preserves, learning more through reading groups and film nights, having fun and travelling lightly.

We have a number of projects on the go, so look through the website, join us on Facebook, check out the events page, sign up to get notifications, and if you think there is something you could help with or want to start, then don't hesitate, come to an event and let us know. We look forward to getting to know you.

The New Horsham District Seed Circle

Our seed circle is a group of people who each grow one crop, harvest it and save seed for our 2022 seed swap. We will support members at key stages of the growing calendar - mainly online but with some opportunities to meet up in person. If you are interested in participating, here is a form for you to fill in, and someone will get back to you.

Community Allotment

Ideal if you wish to have a go at growing your own vegetables but don’t want to commit to taking on a full allotment. Located on the Chesworth allotment site at the end of Arun Way. Working parties take place on two Saturdays per month, March to October, from 2 - 5 pm.

A description of the activity and achievements on the allotment during the difficult year of 2020 can be found here.

If you are interested in participating in the community allotment project, send an e-mail to allotment@transitionhorsham.org.uk. Chesworth allotment site is secure, so you will need to contact us if you wish to join one of the work parties, so we can let you on site.
