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.

Animal Rescue Workday

Kirkby Pet Welfare is a small animal shelter attempting to tackle the desperate task of rescuing and re-homing unwanted rabbits, hamsters and other small rodents, often bred indiscriminately by the pet trade.

Nottingham Animal Rights seeks volunteers for regular workdays. It is really rewarding work, because we can all do a little to make a big difference. The dogs at Pet Welfare are only walked once or twice a week so this is an easy and fun job that can make a positive impact on their lives. Transport may be available from Beeston or Nottingham - call Lee on 07599 282851.

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

The 2014 event returns to last year's site near Derby/Nottingham, 5mins from junction 26 of the M1. By spending less time organising the venue more energies can go into building a bigger better gathering. Advance notice is given that a location further north may be looked for for next year.

Veggies will be co-ordinating the catering, running a cafe space and holding "mass vegan catering" workshops. To help with the catering or for special dietary needs contact Veggies

To get involved look out for the next planning meeting, or get in touch.

For an idea of what to expect, see the 2012 Gathering Report, website or Facebooks

Brinsley Animal Rescue Open Day

/img/arc/brinsleypigs.jpg Join us raising funds for animal rescue work and the animal hospital at Brinsley Animal Rescue, a not for profit organisation, run by volunteers on vegan values, dedicated to the caring of pets, wild animals and farm animals.

Our primary mission is to relieve the suffering of animals and birds. Many of the animals that come to us are simply ’surplus to requirements’ from the meat, dairy and egg industry. Because such animals are deemed unprofitable then it is our aim to take them on and find them loving homes in which they can enjoy the retirement they deserve.

As well as stalls, talks and games, there is vegan beer, vegan ice cream and food by Veggies so come over, chill out and meet the animals. Find out about regular work days with Nottingham Animal Rights.

Community Circle

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

Earth First Summer Gathering

The Earth First! Summer Gathering is the place where people involved in radical ecological direct action - or those who want to be involved - get together for five days of time and space to talk, walk, share skills, learn, play, rant, find out what's going on, find out what's next, live outside, strategise, hang out, incite, laugh and conspire.

The workshops, networking and planning of actions at this low impact eco-living camp is organised non-hierarchically. It's run without leaders by everyone who comes along, so come prepared to chip in!

What's Still Wrong With McDonalds

/catalogu/mcleaflets.gif 29th International Day of Action Against McDonalds, to mark World Food Day

The very first London Greenpeace anti-McD day of Action was on 19 Jan 1985 and soon became a global phenomenon!

Protest against everything that's wrong with McDonald's - animal cruelty, exploitation of workers, damaging the planet, promoting unhealthy food, marketing to young children and much more. For a summary of the issues surrounding the McLibel Case see the High Court Judgement and the European Court of Human Rights ruling. Also www.knowmore.org

Why not Adopt-YOUR-Store - get leaflets from Veggies or Do-It-Yourself.

It will showcase vegan food, campaign organisations, shoes, crafts, toiletries, etc... in short, a great range of ethical products will be on display, some with free samples, for you to visit. The Festival will welcome vegans, vegetarians and omnivores to come and see the amazing choices vegans have to both help reduce the impact on animals AND have a healthier life. There will be vegan bands playing on the Sunday in the day and admission will still be just £1.

Veggie Month

http://www.animalaid.org.uk/images/covers/world3.gif

Go veggie!

There are many reasons to go veggie including animal welfare, health, environmental protection and cost.

If you are concerned about one or more of these issues, why not take the opportunity to try some more meat-free meals during March or take the veggie challenge? Find support from veggie campaigners in your area from Veggies Networking Directory.

If you are already veggie... go vegan!
