280

Come along to our Annual General Meeting and Special General Meeting

Date: 28th of October

Where: Grey Lynn Community Centre, 510 Richmond Rd. Same venue as the market
Time: 07:30 – 09:00pm

It’s a great chance to get to know other members and join in on a night of music, organic wine and kokako catering. Gardening personality Linda Hallinan is speaking, and there’s a couple of short films from The Outlook for Someday sustainability film challenge.

Not to mention lots of spot prizes from stallholders and local businesses, including wine giveaways, Yoga Ground and il buco vouchers and Weatherfield organic seedlings.

It’s also a chance to be involved in electing the Market’s official management committee (see below). To date the market has been run by an interim management team. We’re in need of keen beans to help keep the momentum of the Market going, particularly people with marketing and organizational experience.

We are now calling for Management Committee nominations

What is the Management Committee?

A small group of up to nine un-paid individuals who are passionate about the Grey Lynn Community and prepared to give up to three hours per week for the cause in addition to attending meetings as required.

How do I get involved?

Write a half page brief about yourself addressing the following:

1. What you can offer as a member of the GLFM  Management Committee.
2. Why you want to be involved.
3. What your vision is for the market.
4. How much time per week can you commit?

You can format your own submission or simply complete the attached template. Please submit all nominations to greylynnfarmersmarket@gmail.com by the 21st of October. These nominations, along with the AGM agenda, will then be circulated to all members for consideration before the AGM.

Thank you for your continued support – See you at the Market on Sunday.

Community Gardening & Collective Food Action

10am Friday 27th – 4pm Saturday 28th November 2009

This workshop is a space for people actively involved in collective food action around Aotearoa to come together to talk about the issues behind community food projects. It will include time to talk about participant’s projects, share knowledge, and explore the challenges and opportunities in this area.

At the workshop we will do some talking together – reflecting, sharing, visioning and networking. We will look at community gardening and other collective food projects in the context of the economic crisis and discuss the ways that community gardening can more effectively address poverty and improve community resilience. We will also get our hands dirty and do some gardening!

Who For:       People that are actively involved in community food projects. We welcome participants from last year’s workshop to attend again this year. We hope to have participants from different geographical areas who are involved in a variety of projects.

Cost: $30 for waged people. Food and accommodation provided

Registration:Please register as soon as possible and no later than the 1st of November. Numbers are limited, so get in quick!

The workshop is at Kotare – 510 Wayby Station Road, Hoteo North, Wellsford. Food and accommodation provided. If you need assistance with travel, please contact us and we will see whether we can help.
