Transition Town Poole ran a stall at the Bite the Lighthouse festival, part of Dorset Food Week. The event, held today Sunday 24th October 2009, had lots of lovely local food stalls, food related films, demonstrations and talks.

Tat developed an excellent Apple Leaflet, and Brendan a quizbox which survived the many enquiring hands ably. Mark brought along compost and some animals beneficial to compostmaking, plus a suprising dangerous animal in a pot. Andy, Harriet and Katie also helped field questions throughout the day.

We weren’t as busy as some of the stalls giving away food, but we had a steady stream of interest, with many people wanting space to grow their own food.
