25 Jan: Film ‘To the Ends of the Earth’

6pm at Hereford Courtyard.

The film follows concerned citizens living at the frontiers of extreme oil and gas extraction. To the Ends of the Earth brings forward the voices of those who not only denounce the rise of extreme energy, but also envision the new world that is taking shape in its stead: a future beyond the resource pyramid, a post-growth economy.

Join members of Herefordshire Green Network after the screening to discuss the topics arising in the film and to find out more about green energy.

So what is a seed swap ? Gardeners will have the chance to contribute seed, as well as to help themselves too. So, you bring seed that ,either you have grown and collected, or if you have surplus commercial seed from the year before, you then help yourself to what you may need. All seed will be laid out on a table. If you don’t bring any seed of your own you can still help yourself but we do ask you to make a donation. A box will be provided. For more information, or if you wish to get involved. please contact Roger Pugh pugh@live.co.uk,or ring 01885-483425.
