FREEGAN MEETING, FREEGANISM 101 & TRASH TOUR!
Help make freeganism happen in NYC! At our organizational meetings we discuss and decide on future activities and group direction. Participants are encouraged to step up and introduce new freegan projects with the support of the group or take roles such as facilitating meetings or bottom-lining events. We welcome both those with experience taking part in non-hierarchical consensus-based groups and those participating for the first time! At 9pm, we will end our business meeting and have a brief, newcomer-friendly discussion about freeganism. After, we will explore the area’s wasted food and other goods. We give advice on how to salvage these goods and comment on the reasons for such waste. The meeting is NOT open to media, but media WILL be welcome to the tour with appointment.
When & Where? Meet at 7:30pm along The HighLine (10th Ave. between 18th & 17th Streets). We’ll meet at the 10th Avenue Square (photo / map), just below 17th Street. PLEASE NOTE: If it’s raining, we’ll meet in the covered area 2 blocks south. For the Freeganism 101 and Trash Tour, meet us at 9pm in the same location.
WEDNESDAY, JULY 16TH
FREEGAN VEGGIE BEACH BBQ!
A FREE and mostly vegan community meal we make together with love using rescued food. We’ll meet new people, reconnect with old friends, tell stories and jokes, and generally unplug from the current world order as we explore creative, alternative ways of being. Plan on lending a hand in some way even if other commitments prevent you from arriving on time. Media are welcome with appointment but they will be required to respect the wishes of those who do not want to be photographed.
When and Where: Will be held out in the beautiful, beachy Rockaways - we’ll be grilling on the terrace! Come out early or stay late and enjoy the beach! RSVP to Janet at 347-724-6954 (at least one day in advance, and no texts) for the address!
