Our first mosaic workshop

Last Sunday we got all creative and started decorating the bollards at the Arnot Street site. A huge thanks to Jaine Marriott, our excellant teacher and a fantastic professional mosaic producer (see her website http://www.jainemarriotmosaics.co.uk/ to see her work). Here are some photos of us hard at work. Photos of the results are posted below


Friends of the Earth Falkirk AGM 10th September

The Friends of the Earth Falkirk AGM will be held as part of a day of action on Saturday 10th September 2011. At 11am the group will encourage shoppers at Falkirk High Street to "say NO to plastic bags" by handing out cotton shopping bags in partnership with Falkirk BID. At Lunchtime the group will share a Local lunch with the food sources as local, organic or Fairtrade as possible. The afternoon session will be an opportunity to plan the groups campaigns and events around our usual campaign themes of Waste, Food, Transport, Energy and Environmental Justice.

ASDA Garden Takes Shape

Friends of the Earth Falkirk planted out their Community Garden at ASDA Falkirk before their August meeting. After a couple of sessions to clear the ASDA site our second garden starts to take shape. The group purchased plants and herbs from the Gartinny Nurseries , which supports Scottish Autism, to create a sensory garden which will hopefully make people think twice about using the garden as a litter bin or an ashtray while waiting for their bus.
