Sumac Community Food Garden

/sumac/images/survivegrowsharelearn.jpg

Calling all gardeners and potential gardeners!

This spring the Sumac garden will be turned into mini community allotments! The current vegetable beds will be divided up in to small plots. Individuals and groups can request this space to grow fruit, vegetables, herbs, and flowers for local wildlife.The site will be launched following a big clear up in April.

Put it in your diary and come along every Wednesday evening in April from 5.30pm to kick start a year of abundance. Contact fffgcmail@lists.aktivix.org if you are keen to get involved.'

Meanwhile... The garden is planted with winter veg at the moment so beds are pretty sorted, but a general tidy up would be good. Any time you can spare to help with this community resource is greatly appreciated. Just pitch in on your own initiative.

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.

Community Circle

http://www.inclusive-solutions.com/images/wall.JPG

In Nottingham we have a quiet revolution going on.

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.

Women's Conversation and English Language Improvement Classes

http://nottssos.files.wordpress.com/2011/03/esol_world.jpg There is a great need for English classes that are free and specifically intended for women only.

The classes will run for two hours a week, on Monday mornings, from 10 to 12. It is important that we have full on concentration and peace for those two hours. This means we would really appreciate not being disturbed.

One special and really nice thing (that is how we feel about it, at least) with our classes is the fact that we offer child-care for their children, so we really make it a lot easier for them to be able to come. These classes are the latest version of the ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) classes for women previously held at Sumac.

We would be very happy if anyone would like to volunteer, either as a teacher or as a child minder. Email Maja or contact via the Sumac Centre
