About Us

Transition Worcester is committed to working with local communities, organisations and local government to help develop positive solutions that meet the imminent challenges of fossil fuel scarcity (‘Peak Oil’) and Climate Change. Above all, Transition Worcester has a positive vision of a resilient and sustainable future beyond the age of abundant fossil fuel energy. We are part of the growing Transition Towns movement in the UK. Please look through this website for current ideas, plans, information and how to get involved.

Keep in Touch and join our Transition Journey

We are a growing Transition Group and we need your help to transition Worcester from a position of oil dependency to local resilience.

Sign up today to receive news about upcoming events and meetings. You can also follow us on Facebook and Twitter for all the latest updates.

Join a Working Group

We have a number of working groups actively involved in finding ways to engage with local communities and businesses to reduce waste and fossil fuel use. We also have a number of practical projects in place- all of which rely on volunteers to help them run. These include:

  • Food Group– hold monthly meetings and run events throughout the year including seed and plant swaps, forages and gleans.
  • Teaching and Display Garden – demonstrating and encouraging methods to ‘grow your own’ at our community gardens at the Old North Stables, Pitchcroft.
  • Orchard Workers– help maintain Worcester’s traditional fruit trees and orchards and run a programme of apple pressing events each autumn.
  • Repair Cafe Worcester– monthly event where volunteers will have a go at repairing anything that needs repairing!
  • Worcester Food Rescue – rescuing food destined for landfill from local supermarkets and distributing to local good causes.
  • Energy 

If you’re interested in getting involved in any of these,  or have a skill to offer, please contact us.

Help Required!

In order to help with spreading the word that Transition Worcester is up and running, we would like to know about locations where we can advertise events, such as pubs, community centres, local shops and other community groups in Worcester.

We also need help in organising and running events, so if you can help in any way it would be great. Please contact us for more information.
