What a fabulous weekend we’ve just had, and it’s the last week at OK Cafe Greenhouse already. Time flies when you’re having fun! But don’t worry – we have a packed programme over the next few days, so get stuck in while you can…
1-3pm: Hulme Preservation Society – An Eco/community Build Project
We are the Hulme Preservation Society. We own half of the church of the Saint Marys in Hulme, with the aim of developing a sustainable community resource and permaculture garden. We’d like to invite people to look around the site and tell us what you’d like us to build, and how you’d like to get involved.
The church is best seen in daylight, so we’d like to meet at 1pm at the cafe to explain a little about the project for a half hour, and then travel to the church, on St Mary Street, Hulme, near Loretto College. Its not far and we should be able to provide some transport. Anyone who misses the intro can join us there from 2pm onwards.
4.30-6pm: Squat Electrics
Introduction to electricity & how to get it working in a squat environment. Want to learn anything from changing a plug to rewiring a house… come along & we’ll look at how to do it without giving anyone a shock (except possibly your mates who’ll be impressed with your new-found skills)! Don’t touch the live wire and keep your finger on the button….
6-7pm: Dinner Time at the OK Cafe – All welcome!
7.30-8.30pm: Open Meeting
The OK Cafe is run by the people who go to it… come along and help make the cafe happen and be part of decisions about how the space is used! If you are new to the Cafe or have never been to a meeting at the Cafe before, please go to the half hour session before the meeting to find out about how the cafe and the decision making process works.
8.30-10.30pm: Didgeridoo Workshop
The art of didgeridoo playing mixed with beat-boxing and progressive sounds.
Benjamin Lilley will teach the basic principles of didgeridoo playing and how to piece it together with new sounds like samba, techno, breakbeat and dubstep.
