Zine Capture

Fresh from the presses, might we encourage you to zine with us? We'll use this zine to spread the word and educate about the Rahma Forest Garden door-to-door and through other outreach locations. We need people's time and creativity to create and produce this product, please help :>) We know there's lots of zinesters out there! Here's an opportunity to put your skills into action!

Looking for cultural creatives, or just those who want to learn more through teaching, to choose a topic and create a page in our Rahma Forest Garden User's Guide zine. Are you someone who could do that?

FrackingPaperCapture2The concern for safe and healthy environments is an ongoing trial for many of us, both personally and publicly.  The movement to ban horizontal hydraulic fracturing has been going on for years now in New York, and is still in need of energy and a louder voice.  The Glossary Link Alchemical Nursery has until now, not provided a formal statement in regard to hydro-fracking, not out of any question of our position, nor of a lack of interest, but simply due to a lack of priority.  We give thanks and appreciation to the many individual activists and groups and organizations that are, and have been, leading this fight.  Individuals within the Alchemical Nursery have often engaged in local efforts and actions to support the ban, and now have made the effort as an organization to lend our voice to this ongoing struggle with our anti-fracking position statement.

The Alchemical Nursery’s Anti-Hydrofracking Position
As residents of New York State, and the greater global ecological system, The Alchemical Nursery stands in solidarity with all those who resist the Hydrofracking industry’s attempts to horizontally drill for natural gas in New York State and the world. We recognize that the construction of drilling wells in New York State would entail water contamination, ecological destruction, and significant air pollution. These proposed drilling operations are another instance where an unsustainable economic system is attempting to impose its logic upon us, at our expense and against our will, with catastrophic results for the integrity of both global ecosystems and human communities.   (Continued, please click "Read More").

Swap2012Capture ThumbJoin us for the fun of another CLOTHING SWAP at the Westcott Street Cultural Fair.  This mutual aid action was such a blast last year, that we're bringing it back, hopefully on an annual basis.  Help us spread the word so that we can get lots of extra clothes on site, and get them distributed to anyone who wants or needs them.

Sunday September 23 on Westcott Street (in front of Dorian's if we get our same location as last year).  Bring clothes the day of the event and add them to our ever changing size of a pile.  Or you can drop them off ahead of time by contacting Sasha through the email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

Take clothes for free, even if you have nothing to share with the swap pile!

We also hope to be screenprinting a new design featuring a local wild edible.  Last year we showcased a line drawing of Staghorn Sumac.  Sasha is working up a new design for this year, so we'll have to wait and see what it is!  Screenprinting will be done for a sliding scale fee of between $1 and $10, and either on your own piece of clothing you bring or something you select from the swap pile.

See photos from last year's swap at http://www.alchemicalnursery.org/photo-gallery/westcott-street-cultural-fair/2011-clothing-swap.html.  Click through "Read More" for a fuller sized version of the flyer :>)
