Working to reduce our carbon footprint

Last updated: 21 July 2015

In 2014 Transition Portishead worked with Portishead in Bloom to transform a neglected piece of ground into a Town Garden.                                       

The Education Group has designed and delivered workshops on sustainable living to nearly 1000 local primary school pupils.

Two big picnics have been held in Jubilee Park.      In 2014 the big picnic contributed to Portishead in Bloom’s gaining a Royal Horticultural Society gold award.
