With baskets, scissors and knives we'll take a trip outdoors along the Alna River and find local wild food to take with us. In our community kitchen we'll prepare a meal from what we found.
Our guide will be Anne Siri Brandrud.
Registrations can be sent to Kirsten Paaby - firstname.lastname@example.org - before April 23.
About the Neighbourhood Café
The neighbourhood cafés will be a combination of small inspiration talks, practical activities, and social get-togethers They will be based on the UN's 17 Sustainable Development Goals – can they be anchored locally?
The following topics have been set up for 2019:
• Repair and clothes swap
• From rubbish to musical instruments
• Vegetable fermentation
• Using leftovers and home composting
Vålerenga community centre, in cooperation with other organisations and groups, wants to "put Vålerenga on the map" and, as a neighbourhood, present its contribution to a green, sustainable city.
The community centre's 30-year history is part of a larger story about the importance of community action, local identity, and a sense of belonging. The centre has been run on a voluntary basis ever since it opened. It has provided a base for friendships and networks across generations and has become an arena for learning, getting to know people, and feeling a sense of belonging. These experiences will provide the basis for the operation of the neighbourhood cafés.
The centre has a large, friendly meeting hall on the ground floor where the neighbourhood cafés will be held.
