Govan, And Common Goods.

      If you are in or around Glasgow on January 13th. there is an interesting event from Bob at Citystrolls:
 January 13th 2015 7:00 
Pearce Institute

      You are invited to a Common Good evening to find out about and discuss the Farmhouse project.

     Take an old farmhouse part of Govan’s Common Good Fund and turn it into an independent community resource centre. Use the entire process from planning to building as a learning project and include as much of the community as possible.
      In this our first of many TownHall meeting. We will set out plans for the Farmhouse and discuss ways 
of how folk could become involved. Then open it to the floor for peoples
 input and ideas. 

What we will look at on the night is: 

- A short presentation of the farmhouse and ideas for future developments in 2015. 
- Why independent commons assets are important to our communities. 

- Why it is important to different organisations in the wider context. 

- The commons in helping to create new community models relevant to
 local people.

- How we protect the Common Good Fund for future generations, by 
understanding what it is and using it to empower communities.
Light refreshments and 
some snacks will be supplied during evening
