What’s coming 2022

We hope to bring more events to Kew over the coming months. We welcome ideas, funding and any offers of support.

We are seeing funding for Repair & Share events, clothes swap, a Gardening for Wildlife talk/workshop, Seed Share, Seed library and much more.

What’s happened 2022

We invited Kew The Transition members and anyone interested in sustainability in our community to meet in person at The Greyhound on Kew Green for an informal chat. We hope to make this a regular event in the Kew and Richmond Green calendar to get momentum behind collaboration.

As part of LBRUT Clean & Green Week and the national Big Green Week, we enjoyed some fun, friendly face time with current Kew The Transition members and anyone interested in learning more about our group and aims – and exploring how we can create a sustainable, resilient community fit for our climate-challenged future at St Luke’s Open Space on Sandycombe Road.

Repair & Share – 28 May 2022, 2:30-5:30pm

Our first repair event brought the joy of repairing and refurbishing to Kew, at The Avenue Halls, St Luke’s. We assembled a team of volunteer ‘repairers’ who offered their time and advice to help our community have a go at reviving broken items.

Our repairers looked at computers, phones, small/household electronics (no microwaves), toys, soft furnishings and textiles, and we had someone to help with bike-service questions also on the day. We hope this free, fun event was a learning experience for our visitors, and helped people to enjoy making things last longer!

Seed Share – Pop up in Kew Village

We popped up in Kew Village to offer up our remaining veg and flower seeds.

Seed Share – 27 March 2022, 11:00am – 2:00pm

On Mothering Sunday we brought our gazebo back to Kew Plaza, and brought all the seeds we could gather to our community. We talked Transition and offered up seeds to start your Spring planting. We also offered sunflower seeds in solidarity with Ukraine.
