The North Howe Transition Toun Food Group and Monimail Tower Project have been working in partnership to create a small scale Transition re-skilling library set in the ancient and unique Monimail Tower.
The opening of the library will take place on Sunday 22 November 12-2pm at Monimail Tower. There will a cutting of an eco ribbon, some local eco poets, an ‘open eco mic’ and a delicious local meat and vegetarian BBQ.
‘Open Eco Mic’ – this will be an opportunity for people to contribute an eco poem or a short eco reading that they have written or is particularly meaningful to them. If people aren’t brave enough to read it out, they can post it up on a board for others to read on the day!
To give you an idea of the range of books The Green Library will have, there are the following subjects:
Local Food, Growing, Small Holding, Fish, Permaculture, Preserving, Eco Building and Renovation, Home Brewing, Energy Descend, Transport, Heart & Soul, Aquaculture, Woodland, Transition, Peak Oil, Local Livelihoods and Economics, Sustainability, Crafts, Nature, Baking, Cooking & a Children’s section. Relevant topical donations to the library are most welcome – if you are keen to donate books please contact Hayley.
