Present: Gaz, Blue, Shannon, Swithun
Need real persons name. It could be mine, or it could be someone elses.
Organic isnt everything, but it is shorthand for lots of good things.
Get a list of everything we use, see what can we can switch to organic.
Shannon is already doing this. Stuff from Green City is fine. Milk is organic, but comes from big dairy. Organic is too expensive for cheese, but local is possible.
Organic beans on toast? They are a bit expensive - 5 times more so.
Put list of goods on BB and ask people to find alternative sources. (Shannon)
Ask Engine Shed about rules for growing vegetables and selling them.
Where do Susies Diner get their food from?
Can we plant flowers in other gardens out back? Get cash for bulbs.
Workshops - urban gardening, sneaky sneaky.
What can be done in garden? Blue will map the garden and work out what needs to be done. Ask for 70 quid for cheap bulbs. (Blue, Shannon) Laura and Andy did some good stuff at the weekend.
Blue described a better design of bin - lots of worms, comes off in sections. Shannon's bin was free, so we could still go for a different one.
What is our budget? 50 pounds per month would probably do. Shannon will ask at another meeting.
Redesign the area. Swithun talk to building group.
Swithun put up envelope on notice board. Can empty it into container downstairs and then take that to Ikea.
