Other Outside Events at the 2013 Bristol anarchist bookfair

These are the other events going on in the garden of the Trinity centre. Some are dependant on half-decent weather, although the meetings in the Tin Roof Shack are covered. You can download this info as a pdf Other Outside Events full programme.

Our thanks go to those organising metings and events, and to the Trinity Permaculture Garden crew for sharing their space and work with us.

Tin Roof Shack Meetings:
resist2-3: Allotments talk
(Lia Leendertz)

Garden writer Lia will talk about the radical history of allotments and the current threats to allotment land, with reference to her new book ‘My Cool Allotment’, a celebration of beautiful and unusual plots.


herb3-4: Medicine Garden and Radical Herbal Gathering
(Rhizome Community Herbal Clinic)

Our medicine garden project is based on skill-sharing and creating a community resource so people can be more autonomous in their self-care. Knowledge of local medicinal plants will reduce our reliance on large pharmaceuticals for basic medicines. Plus intro to UK’s first ever Radical Herbal Gathering in June 2013.

4-6: Rebel music singalong
Come join your voice to the swell of some classic and also lesser-known rebel songs. Misfits, mongrels & mutineers particularly welcome. Songbooks/words provided.
