Abbots In Transition organise Spring and Autumn Giveaways, where residents can leave free items outside their houses for others to take.
Participants email their details to the Transition group who then produce a map of giveaway locations which can be downloaded on the day.
At the Spring giveaways residents are encouraged to giveaway spare seeds and seedlings to help others grown their own. At the Autumn giveaways the focus is on excess garden produce, encouraging people to eat local.
The giveaways also stimulate the local re-use economy by circulating books, toys, clothes etc.
The Abbots Langley Giveaways began in Autumn 2020 as a response to the covid-19 pandemic when it was no longer possible to hold the community markets in the Henderson Hall.
