Plant label making/Ecocide talk with Polly Higgins

Craft session – ‘upcycled’ plant labels  
Saturday 28th April, 1pm-4pm
Art room (1st floor), Highgate Newtown Community Centre

We held our second crafty get together on the last Saturday in March to mend and alter clothes, work on those neglected projects and made a start on some bunting for our events. Although most of us would happily potter along with textiles, we decided at our next rendezvous on April 28th to do something a little more seasonal.

We will be making plant labels using found and recycled materials. Have you any old wine corks, broken or unused pots, bits of wood or leftover paint that you have been saving for something? This will be a chance to get creative, make something attractive and/or useful, and maybe even donate something you have made to sell at our stall at The Parliament Hill Farmers Market on May 19th. Please come along and join us and read some of our ideas here.

Ecocide talk with Polly Higgins  Monday 30th April, 7.30pm
Primrose Hill Community Library, Sharpleshall Street, NW1 8YL

Ecocide is the destruction, damage and loss of ecosystems. Ecocide is happening on a mass scale and is getting worse day by day. We can change this – by making it a crime!

An international law for Ecocide would make CEOs and our Heads of State legally responsible for the Earth. People and the planet would become the number one priority. Ecocide is part of Earth law, a new body of law we need to protect the Earth.

Polly Higgins is the lawyer who has found a way to make Ecocide illegal so as to encourage big companies to alter their priorities. She will be talking about Ecocide at an event organized jointly by the Camden Transition Towns: Primrose Hill, Belsize, Bloomsbury, Dartmouth Park, Hampstead, Highgate, Kentish Town and Tufnell Park.
