Something for the Weekend 1 June 2012 #Manchester #Climate

To get your weekend off to a start- a bad joke.

What do you called an illegally parked frog? Toad.

And this weekend…

Sat 2 June, 10.30 to 12.30 Wildlife taster session – at Chorlton Ees. This will be an introduction to the From Grey to Green project, explaining why it is important to record flora and fauna. There will be a walk around the local area demonstrating how the course will teach people to identify and record wildlife. The meeting place will be Chorlton Ees car park which is at the end of the cobbled road off Brookburn Road, Chorlton (the entrance to the cobbled road is between Brookburn Road Primary School and Chorlton Brook).  If you want to know more please contact Steve; his e-mail is:

Sat 2 June, 10am- 12.30 onwards, Fallowfield Secret Garden U-design day will start with a carpentry workshop followed by lunch and then a collective designing session where all ideas are welcome. To register your interest contact Mark at thefallowfieldsecretgarden[AT] or call on 07907167085.

Sat 2 June, 12- 6pm, Climate Justice Collective meeting at Manchester Metropolitan Students Union (top floor), Oxford Road , M1 7EL. Following on from the Winter Warm Up in January  and the Big Six Energy Bash in May, join us for a day of reflection and future planning:

If you know of weekend events that are about “climate” (and that includes food growing, or cycling or whatever), then let us know and we can include them in future “Something for the Weekend”s…
