January 2014

Inclusion in this calendar is NOT a guarantee of quality. If we think something is extremely likely to be worth your time, then we will put one or more little “thumbs up” icons next to it. We a) are maybe prejudiced about some groups b) have specific criteria about usefulness and c) could be wrong.

Wed 22nd, 6.15pm AfSL Green Seeds Finale Celebration, Whalley Range
AfSL will be hosting the final celebration event for the Green Seeds project.
The Carlton Club will provide the space (and bar), along with locally sourced seasonal snacks and entertainment from spoken word artists and musicians. There will be a couple of special guests to help us tell the Green Seeds story and celebrate the great work the project has allowed AfSL to do over the past four years.
The event will kick off at 6:15pm with AfSL’s AGM (open to all), followed at 7pm by a chance to browse interactive, crafty stalls. To finish the evening off there’ll be live music and more chatting.

“We are aiming to enable groups of people to live together within the city in a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way. Although we’ve been quiet recently, we have actually been really busy – working on eco-renovating our house in Withington, and also looking at legal structures and finances to enable another house to be acquired. Come along to find out how these things are progressing, and to meet members of the co-operative who will be living at the Withington house. We are looking for additional people too!”
