Meetings and Stalls

WDM Conference
Martin volunteered to be the link person for the WDM inter-agency conference to be held in the autumn.

Ethical FoodWe had an invite to participate in an Ethical Dilemma Seminar that the Co-operative Group were holding at Sheffield Hallam University on Tuesday, 8 April (7-9pm). The hook for the evening was their recently launched Food Ethical Policy, which they hope will lead to our wider discussion around the sometimes confusing world of living an "Ethical Life".

Green Roofs
Peter Burgess came to talk to the group about the green roofs he has installed.  So far these have been outbuilding/shed roofs although they can be installed on any roof with a slope of 30o or less.  The main concern is that the roof is able to support the weight of the liner, plants and growing medium.  If you are interested in having a green roof or just want to know more contact Peter on p.burgess-allen@virgin.net or look on the website www.ba-gardendesign.com or www.livingroofs.org

HSBC
Steve gave a talk to HSBC staff last year for World Environment Day, but we were  unable to accept this year’s invitation due to the event being in working hours.

Green Fair
Sheffield FoE will be attending the Green Fair on Saturday 28th June. We have purchased a double outside stall so we’re hoping for nice weather. We’ve also decided to place a 1/4 page advert in the booklet handed out to all attendees. This event will cost the group £35. If you can help out on the day for a few hours then please contact Steve.

Totley Festival
There is a festival in Totley’s Green oak Park on Sunday 22 June from 11am until 5pm. If you are able to help out on the stall for a few hours then please contact Steve.

Peace in the Park
Sheffield Friends of the Earth has been invited to take part in the Peace in the Park event on 14th June. If you can help out then please let us know.
