Deptford green drinks/Project Dirt

The inaugural 'Deptford green drinks' takes place this Thursday 25th February, upstairs at the Royal George pub on Tanners Hill from 7.30pm onwards.

Contrary to popular belief you will not be required to drink creme de menthe unless you really want to - the 'green' bit refers to bringing together like-minded folks interested in 'green' issues such as transition towns, renewable energy, food growing and land use, local economies and so on. Similar events are run all over the capital - and in fact the world according to the website - and I know that Lewisham has had a group running for some time.

Another website to check out if you are interested in environmental issues on a local level is Project Dirt. Here you can find links to lots of projects and events running in south east London, as well as the people who run them. If you are interested in getting involved with something, or want to find collaborators or volunteers for your own project, or just ideas about what kind of things are going on, this is a great place to start.
