We are also really stoked to announce a reunion of Aquafuture, RVA’s avant-e

lectrofunk quartet to open the show…This show is ALL AGES and begins at 6:00PM SHARP!

In it’s 12th year we are stuffing 2 days FULL of music, provided by some of the best ska, punk, rock, brass, jazz, reggae and funk bands from Richmond and beyond, and all in an effort to raise some cash to help a local organization that could use a few $$$’s around the holidays (and have a damn blast in the process).

Saturday February 4th from 3pm til 8pm

The Occupy Richmond Gardening Workgroup and the Wingnut Anarchist Collective are getting ready for some awesome Spring time gardening!

We are getting together in February to plant seeds, which we can grow indoors until March, so we can have awesome, nutritious, delicious gardens in Richmond!

Supplies we need:
Seeds! (For vegetables)
Soil! (Top soil)
Containers for planting seeds in!
More TBA
We might have resources to share as well, more TBA!

If you have questions, donations, concerns etc you can contact Kat at 1 703 859 0393 or Mo at 1 804 300 0023

Come on out if you want to help plant seedlings that we can grow to feed communities around Richmond.
We will also be watching Attack of the Killer Tomatoes at some point during this event (TBA).

The Wingnut is a sober, all ages space. Kids are welcome!

This is an article written by our friend Ramey Connelly in response to an article and an event that happened earlier this month in Richmond. There was a Sustainability Forum that was happening at First Fridays in Richmond at Gallery 5. Food Not Bombs and the Really Really Free Market were both going to table. However the event was not how we pictured it being. You can contact Ramey at rameysaurus@gmail.com and find out more about the Really Really Free Market at http://www.myspace.com/rvafreemarket
Here is what she has to say!

My response to this article: http://wrirnews.blogspot.com/2010/06/for-local-businesses-future-of-richmond.html

As a community member & Richmond enthusiast, I went to the forum to share information about the RVA Really Really Free Market, but came away sorely disappointed. Not only was there no space or table set aside, but my attempts to remedy the issue were thwarted by rudeness and standoffishness. So much for building community.

Luckily, some friendly neighborhood anarchists at the Food Not Bombs table were kind enough to share their space, and we spent the time co-promoting and discussing our confusion and dismay at what surrounded us.

The so-called “sustainability forum” ended up being a marketplace for people to sell their wares under the guise of being “green” and “eco-friendly”. But the majority of people buy over-processed agribusiness products because that’s what they can afford. Buying/going green is just another form of conspicuous consumption; a way of using money to feel morally superior- a luxury that is not afforded to most of the community.

Instead of having a company selling rain barrels, why not a workshop on how to build your own?

Instead of having a company selling solar panels, why not a discussion about ways to reduce energy use in our everyday lives? (more…)
