Farnham Eco-Cinema

Next screening… Tuesday, 24th November

Our upcoming film,”EXXpedition: Making the Unseen Seen” is the story of 14 women who sail across the Atlantic in the 72 foot Sea Dragon with a mission to sample the ocean for plastics and pollutants. They test their own “body burden” of toxins to reveal the link between environmental and personal health. A must see film!
Sue Weaver, one of the crew members, will be with us to give a talk about the film.
For trailer and synopsis visit http://exxpedition.com/film/
As usual, starting at 7.00pm at the Farnham Pottery, this is a gift event. Just bring food to share and, for those who need transport, there will be a car-share available from Upper Hart CP.

Next Green Drinks Tuesday 17th Nov:


Your invitation to Green Drinks with Transition Farnham, this Tuesday, 17th November, 7.30 pm, The Albion,  1 Hale Rd.

 Hi all,

This is to remind you that our next Transition Farnham Green Drinks will kick off at 7.30pm on Tuesday in The Albion! The pub is under new management and appears to be now staffed with a chef, so good food is available.

Responding to events: an interesting discussion on the topic of aquaponics started up this month. To support conversations of this kind – and there are many others possible – I’m going to propose that we create a fb groups page, perhaps moderated (to be discussed). Google groups and Yahoo groups are other options. Email inboxes are not the place! These conversations are very important activities, helping to create vitality, and motivation for action: they should be facilitated as well as we can.

We need a constitution!  The voluntary sector is well supported locally thanks to the excellent staff at VASWS. I’ve had face-to-face conversations with both Carline and Monica this week. They have suggested a simple constitution that would allow us to function like a charity and avoid writing Articles of Association which is the route often used, see https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/269521/gd4text.pdf   Of course, we have to have to define our purposes as charitable, but in this document we do not have to describe our objectives, though we are not allowed to exceed a £5,000 annual income. Please look at this document and let’s get our skates on! The deadline for FTC grants is Friday 19th December, see http://www.farnham.gov.uk/2014/10/applications-invited-community-grants FRC would like funding for a promotional campaign.

Our website needs renewing! What is its purpose, who are the audience, what are the calls for action? The shape of Transition in Farnham has changed over the past couple of years and we need a website that acts more like a facilitating hub/resource for emergent initiatives. Let’s look at this as another funding objective and as an opportunity to engage with other skilled people in the local community.

Real World Projects round-up: Farnham Hoppers have their Green BeerFest this Friday 20th November to celebrate their second year of community beer made with hops grown in Farnham! FRC has had a very busy morning today at the URC with over 40 people attending. The Eco-Cinema screened films about food sovereignty on Tuesday and attracted an audience of over 30. David, please tell us about FLF!

Don’t forget the Climate Rally in Alton on the 28th and please support Lee-Anne Lawrance at UCA as she mobilizes students to join the London Climate March on 29th November.

See you on Tuesday at The Albion.  Rob.

Farnham Eco-Cinema Our next Screening is about Food Sovereignty

Incredible Edible Cinema

Seeds of Freedom and The Jakarta Call at the Farnham Pottery Gallery, Wrecclesham, GU10 4QJ

Two films that take us into Food Sovereignty issues, one highly focussed on seed diversity and the importance of freedom to exchange seed in traditional small farming communities that produce 70% of the world’s food. The other shows us the broad range of issues that activate the movement for food sovereignty as expressed at a recent Via Campesina conference, representing over 200 million members.

We start the evening at 7.00 pm with a potluck supper, bring food to share and you’ll be welcome. This is a gift event: there is no charge as we want you to see these films! After supper we screen the films and follow up with sweets and discussion before finishing at 10.00 pm.
