Greening the Redbricks is at the same time a group of hard-working volunteer residents, and a call to action that you can just get on and DIY. Email us (on greening AT redbricks.org) or come along to our next meeting, the first Wednesday of the month at the TARA office, alternating 5:30 or 6:30 (earlier meetings attended by City South staff; June ’12 at 5:30, July ’12 at 6:30, etc).
We’ve been meeting over the couple of years, most time with a couple of supportive folk from City South (CSM), and sometimes others called in specially. Our aim is to make the Redbricks a more sustainable and all-round nicer place to live, and attempting to connect our day-to-day lives with the big global challenges and impacts out there these days. Sometimes this has meant us getting down to brass tacks, trying to push a mostly willing but limited CSM, and other times dreaming hard, then trying to see how these dreams can easily become reality! Sometimes we’ve all got dead frustrated at how long it takes to achieve little things, other times we get excited, come up with a vision, and win £80,000!
