Sumac Community Food Garden

/sumac/images/survivegrowsharelearn.jpg The Sumac garden has been turned into mini community allotments! The vegetable beds are divided up in to small plots. Individuals and groups can request this space to grow fruit, vegetables, herbs, and flowers for local wildlife.

Local food production is an important part of a low carbon society. We want to encourage, support and learn about food growing in Forest Fields. Sumac's garden is organic and laid out to show the best use of a small space. It is full of ideas you could use to grow your own.

Contact fffgcmail@lists.aktivix.org if you are keen to get involved, or just pitch in on your own initiative.

Community Circle

http://inclusive-solutions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/wall.jpg

In Nottingham we have a quiet revolution going on.

Note that his time the Circle is on a Social Club bar night, so club members and guests are welcome to join the Circle throughout the evening, and note that the bar will open at 9.30pm.

We have maker spaces, community focussed markets and gardens, food collectives, small shops, skills exchanges, fix-it stalls and swapshops. Alongside them we have the rise of homegrown slow food, baked bread made from organic flour from our windmill, bicycles and walking. Operating on a human scale together we are creating an earth-friendly economy and becoming the heart of healthy neighbourhood. These are direct challenges to the consumer society in its expansive earth damaging form.

NGcircle is part of this challenge. Together we demonstrate how magic can happen when we start talking, listening and trusting each other.

Social Centres Gathering

A gathering for people involved or interested in setting up social centres of all types, at the Sumac on the weekend of the 8th/9th of November.

"Across Britain, political activists are buying, renting or squatting run-down, disused buildings in city centres and turning them into vibrant, volunteer-run spaces called 'social centres'. With free or cheap food, regular film and gig nights, political meeting spaces, libraries, free shops and independent media groups, social centres are rapidly becoming a key part of the anti-capitalist struggle."
