Event Description

Logan Can is having it's next meeting entirely devoted to examining the new Logan Community Garden policy. We're aiming for having 4 to 6 organisation or wannabee community gardens in the middle, applying the policy to their situation step by step. We hope to get a number of things out of this: 1. Ideas for those 4-6 groups 2. feedback for council 3. A list of possible solutions to put on a website This will be a guided discussion with those 4 to 6 having the most say. There will be room for audience input but in a structured manner. The documents to be discussed will hopefully soon be available through this website:

This Thursday we will do a workshop with whoever is there, taking any of the 6 examples and applying them to the new Logan community Garden application form
Pls come along and help. This is a brainstorm and the recommendations will go back to the Logan City Council Tim. This is the very first time the policy is tested. We are hoping it won't be the last one. Here is the proposed process:
1. we decide on a date and place for the next film
2. There will be a short overview and intro to what we are doing
3. Each group present applies what they know to the application form as a brainstorm. Complete what you can, notice what you notice.
4. If there are any unknowns or vague items we brainstorm solutions as a group
5. Next we compare and contrast, do a plus, minus, interesting or anything like that.
6. from that we formulate a. follow up steps for each group and b. recommendations or questions to Tim.
7. Minutes put up, forms typed up as much as possible.
See you at 2.30 pm in the Marsden Library, first room on your right.
