Chalk Corner Latest - updated - 11-08-07

The gathering on the 7th of July was agreed to have been a success. The
compost loo was built along with benches for the camp kitchen area. Good
food, information and skills were shared and plans were laid for the future
of the settlement (Chalk Corner) and the future of our culture of low
impact localised sustainability (Survivors).

It was agreed to gather again on the 17th - 18th of August, with a view to
- constructing an earth-oven, building a more substantial kitchen /
workshop area, work to prepare first area of forest garden, begin work on
below ground storage area, get DIY bicycle hub wind generator operational. 

Funding was donated toward a tarpaulin cover for the new kitchen area.

Building materials are needed for the next gathering for the kitchen /
workshop area (2 by 4s
etc), and for forest garden raised beds. Also old or
spare tools, storage boxes, bricks/slabs and kitchen equipment would be

As ever, bring what you hope to find. Firewood, some food, info and skills
to share, road-kill you find on the way, musical instruments and a sense of
humour (optional). 

Parking is limited in wet weather, out of control dogs will be composted,
and please keep our recycling requirements to a minimum (bottles/jars can
be stored on site for future use).

If you wish to get involved, attend the next gathering, support the
settlement plan or be part of the community that will live at Chalk Corner
during the campaign to get planning permission, contact us for further

Note:- The Chalk Corner Collective has an ideological base and is concerned
with building a naturally sustainable future, therefore freeloaders and
chaos merchants need not apply. It is not our intention to follow a
conventional route to gain planning acceptance, but to apply on grounds of
our right to adapt in accord with recently discovered scientific facts
about our climate, and the inability of the government to provide the
reduction of human impact on the environment necessary to ensure our safety
and security.

Who Are Survivors??

Survivors see low impact localised permaculture as the only safe way for
humanity to live with our eco-system.

Survivors believe this system of living will be either adopted voluntarily
by ourselves or else imposed on us forcibly by nature.

Survivors act to spread a message of hope for a truly sustainable future.

Survivors act to prepare themselves and their communities in the event of
this message falling on too many deaf ears.

The Reality Of Climate Change And Our Societies Ability To Adapt.

Many top scientists are now echoing the words of Sir John Houghton,
chairman of the Royal Commission on Environmental Pollution, who says " if
we do not see a 90% cut in co2 emissions by 2050 we face climate catastrophe".

European environment ministers recently gathered to propose targets for a
60% cut in co2 emissions by 2050, but no agreement was made after business
leaders and economists described the targets as "unrealistic".

These indicators show that the present course of action chosen by our
governments is inadequate, and that our society is unable to adapt to the
environmental demands of the 21st century.

People should have the right to adopt a more ecologically sustainable

Survivors aim to champion that right.
