Newsletter March 2012

Dear all visitors,

You can receive this newsletter on email by requesting it to fareshares@aktivix.org

Next Saturday

Due to volunteer shortages, FareShares will be closed next Saturday 24th of March. We apologise for the inconvenience and we encourage welcome new additions to this all-volunteer-run co-operative.

Fridays

On Fridays, for the next two months, fareshares will only open from 4 to 7pm, also as a result of volunteer shortages. Again, we apologise for the inconvenience and we encourage welcome new additions to this all-volunteer-run co-operative.

Herb study

The next herb study will be on Tuesday 3rd of April at the usual time, 7.30 pm.

We will be looking at spring herbs, cleavers, dandelion, nettles and chickweed, focusing on cleavers as the herb study itself.

If you can, please bring fresh of any of the above (or any other herb you know and see growing near you) for us to look at.

Open to anyone – whether you are new to herbs or want to deepen your connection to the plants. We look at one herb each time, drink it fresh (if we can) and dried, share our immediate responses and collective experiences, and cross reference herb books for medicinal and traditional uses.
Free or on donation.

Empty bottles please!

Don’t forget to bring back the 1L bottles you bought washing-up and laundry liquid in; we can refill these.

Finances and donations

Fareshares tries to keep shelf prices as low as possible so that more people can afford to shop here – we’re all volunteers, and we only add a small mark-up – but please do put a donation in the jar when you shop.

With an increased rent and rates bill (as well as utilities) the running costs of the building are higher than they were before. Please consider filling in one of the Standing Order forms, if you can afford to make a regular donation (between £2 and £20 a month – any amount would be brilliant!) to the Building.

We also welcome donations of pens, sellotape, black bin-bags, new envelopes, postage stamps, and A4 paper for printing on.
