Preparing the path, meet-up will consist of a garden visit to look at building, a local walk and talk. Then. Next step conversations at Plantation Productions meeting space. Take a look at the physical space of the site, make some notes and look at a strategy for proceeding and formulating some ideas to get going.
We need a team in to clear space to set up a container workshop; to be kitted out as a learning pod, in which an organised program of activities could be put together.
So we need to put a shipping container in garden to function as a work space, meeting space and fit it with tools and equipment to suit a variety of activities. A place where groups and individuals could, meet, do workshops, and learn about a whole bunch of things.
Set up cargo bike, from (Free Wheel North) as traveling information centre, we can take to schools, events, groups, etc.
Set up Local building group – to connect with other projects. Organise workshops in basic building skills
Start off our Participatory Action Research project and media group. Make programs and updates for Sunny Govan Radio.
Look at the “Well Said” project at plantation who will be filming Farmhouse activities and training people up in media skills.
Putting together presentations to further education departments for student field work to support different aspects of the project.
A schools Common Good Fund information pack to engage children in understanding what the commons is.
These are a few of the ideas we could talk about but it is important that folk feel that they can contribute their own ideas. What will be important is, how we will proceed to do things in the right order and how we go about building capacity for the tasks at hand.
We look forward to seeing you. Bob. Project Development Team
