Here’s some information about the “Sustainable Housing” project in Fallowfield.
a) What has your organisation achieved in the last month?
We have held the first of our fortnightly Jam Sessions and Movie Nights. The Jam Session saw 10 people come together with guitars, drums, pots, pans, spoons and a digeridoo. At Movie Night we will be alternating between those relevant to sustainability, community and personal development. Our first showing was No Impact Man (2009) – the story of a family in New York who attempt to have no impact on the environment for a year. We have now launched to the student population at fresher’s fair.
b) What events/”get involved” opportunites do you have coming up in the next month?
The next Jam Session is on Thursday 4th October at 7pm. BYOI (instruments). The next Movie Night is on Thursday 11th October at 7pm. We’re showing Peaceful Warrior (2006) – the story of a young gymnast who has to overcome some personally- limiting beliefs in order to live a happy life.
All the above are at 34 Finchley Road, Fallowfield, M14 6FH.
c) What specific help would you appreciate from individuals and groups?
Bring your ideas and enthusiasm to the house and use it as a base to create your own projects that will benefit the community and help you gain skills and experience. We are currently looking for people with an interest in food, renewable energy technology, waste, construction, fence weaving.
