Are you interested in Eco-building? Like to try constructing with straw bales? Want to be involved in the creation of a brand new Environment Centre in the Lordship Rec.? If you are nodding your head to any of these questions, then we have the perfect project for you! This summer you could be involved in an innovative mission to provide a sustainable learning centre for the community of Tottenham and surrounding areas!
– packed with exciting, informative, relevant, useful, empowering and fun-tastic green community activities throughout all corners of the borough!
This year’s annual Haringey Sustainability Month, coordinated by the Sustainable Haringey network, promises to be the most extensive programme of local green events and widespread publicity ever held in the borough. Throughout the whole month, local residents and community groups, environmental organisations and the Council have organised dozens of events in all corners of Haringey including film shows, festivals, nature walks and talks, practical seminars and workshops, skills sharing, information stalls, social events, bike rides and Dr Bike, visits to eco-homes and plant growing sites, games, meetings, protests, foraging trips, and healthy eating! These events will promote the positive green policies and practices our society urgently needs to adopt to deal with mounting environmental concerns and climate change. Tens of thousands of leaflets are being distributed to publicise the activities.
The full programme of events is set out below, and can be accessed from the home page of www.sustainableharingey.org.uk (please publicise!). By accessing the website, people can get the full details of the events planned, and can also sign up for regular Sustainable Haringey updates.

Saturday 11th July 2:00pm The Friends are having another work-in in the Lordship Woodlands nr Downhills Pk Rd to cut back the rest of the dogwood and overgrown shrubbery… It’s so much fun this will be the third time in 3 months! If you’re up for it bring secateurs or shears.
So there you are – something for everyone: creative photography, cutting and slashing, or just come along for moral support (and see you in the hut afterwards for a cup of tea!).
