Enough gathering

October 10, 2011

This weekend was the Enough gathering, and a bunch of us got together at the appropriately eco-styled National Forest YHA. We had discussions, talks, prayers, a dawn bird walk, good food and plenty of great conversation. The kids even got to make rockets.

Thanks to Elly and Betsy, Ruth and Mark, and all those involved in organising the weekend. Thanks too to the YHA staff for making us very welcome and putting up with our bizarre requests. I get the impression we weren’t typical guests…

And thanks to all who came along, for the stories and ideas, the inspiration and the good company!

 

Some links and things we mentioned. The gathering was a joint event with Breathe and Arocha Living Lightly. The Facebook page is here, and Dave would like you to say hello.

It was great to have Tony from the Lifestyle Movement with us, a group that has been living simply for longer than many of us have been alive.

We talked about Ethical Consumer magazine, Labour Behind the Label, Fairtrade, and tracking energy consumption with iMeasure. My blog is here, and if you wish to take up my recommendation, here’s more on the TV-b-gone universal off switch.

If you’ve got a link to add from your own conversations, please leave a comment below.
