It’s been a busy couple of weeks!
Our Harvest festival celebration with the Himalayan Centre and St James Scottish Episcopal Church on the 24th of October was a really enjoyable event. We shared food, did a Himalayan dance workshop and a fermentation workshop, sang some songs and had a wonderful talk from Iain MacKinnon of the Scottish Crofting Federation. He read us a statement from the SCF which you can read here.
The Himalayan Centre’s Carbon Conversations is a programme of 6 free weekly sessions that aims to support people wanting to reduce their environmental impact. We’ll be talking about what it means to be green and environmentally aware, and all complexities and practicalities this implies. By sharing our experiences, hopes and questions in a non-judgemental environment we’ll get a true sense of how each of us can contribute to a healthier, happier and greener community.
Please note participants are welcome to attend all or some sessions, and we will be giving a Carbon Literacy Certificate to those who take part in all six gatherings. The sessions are free and open to all. For more information and to book, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 078 5180 2002.
