Rosie Munro Kerr Thu 8 Feb 2018

THANK YOU everyone for attending.

Minutes from our meeting this morning attached.

Action points for everyone before next meeting are:
1. contact local carpet shops/suppliers/fitters and fabric shops for cardboard tubes
2. collect recycled items and possible materials to test during next meeting
3. start plastic bottle collections in colleges
4. DOCUMENT materials collection process
5. write conceptual statement for circulation to rest of Digital Maker Collective.

We wrote an overarching statement for the whole 'Are humans sustainable?' group. Ours is summarised as:
'Growing space' is a space for growing and is sourced locally from waste.

We will still need our statements for our group specifically which can use 'growing space' as a module within various sentences.

NEXT MEETING: Wednesday 14th February @ 10am

Thank you for the notes of the meeting ! Hanna and I went to the Tate Modern this afternoon and I took some pictures of the space... I can edit them so we can start drawing our ideas of how the structure would look like ?

Yes good idea. I’ve put some bottle collections up in Chelsea. I’ll
Make some more and start contacting carpet fitters for tubing. I’m going to try some newspaper tests too.

Cooking Oil Tins

HR

Hanna R Fri 9 Feb 2018

I have 3 oil tins from a Morley's at Brixton. They have 1-2 empty tins a day. And there are more than 2 Morley's here. I can collect more If we will need a lot.

RMK

Rosie Munro Kerr Fri 9 Feb 2018

So brilliant! I'm just checking with Chris that we can use the store room next to the makerspace to store our materials as we collect them. I have about 50 carpet tubes to put somewhere!

Zoe Tue 13 Feb 2018

Hi Rosie, I have contact two local carpet fitters: Floor For Thought in Clapham (which reuse their roles) and Braggins in Battersea (which have roles available to collect accept on Tuesdays and Fridays as they get collected to be disposed of then!

RMK

Rosie Munro Kerr Tue 13 Feb 2018

Ok great, thanks Zoe. We have quite a lot of tubes to get started with - I delivered them to the Chelsea Makerspace on Saturday. So if we need more we can go to Braggins.

Here is my 100 word abstract to submit to "There and Back again" event, but can also be reused as a description of our Growing Space :

This project is the adaptation of a greenhouse in an indoor environment, raising questions about sustainability. Since it is locally sourced with non-specialist materials from recycling circuits, it is aimed to be easy to build its own, as a modular framework that can be replicated by anyone. The modularity of the space provides an expanding and growing capacity backed up by the plants growing in it, creating an intimate and pleasant atmosphere, in which the air is filtered, providing a cleaner environment to be in. This adaptable space rethink design as a collective and evolving activity that can be shared and used between the members/builders.

Hi all the structure you worked on in the space has collapsed, it was very fragile and its been a buy day in the maker space - we have moved it to the side of the room - lets try and make a space we can mark off so you can build
