Friday activities ...

Yesterday, at lunchtime, I took part in the latest Dundee Transition Town group meeting at Dundee West Church hall.   Amongst matters discussed was the group's proposed new website, participation in the West End Christmas Week community fayre, climate challenge funding and the Dundee Urban Orchard project.

Urban Orchard is a Dundee-based art and community project that supports the planting, maintenance, and harvesting of fruit and nut trees in the city.   Working with a variety of community groups including local schools, community centres, and in conversation with Dundee City Council, the project seeks to support biodiversity, encourage community participation, promoting healthy living, and a deeper understanding of environmental sustainability.

Later yesterday, I participated in the latest Harris Academy Project Board, at which we discussed progress with the school rebuilding project planning and associated issues.
