It was a bit like running a 'mini' version of Amma's Dublin programme: setting up the tent, cooking the snack food, running the bookshop/GreenFriends stalls, selling pakoras, hot drinks, cooked snacks, homemade juices and delicious lassi - and having great fun and song as we went :)
The GreenFriends table promoted care of birds, bumblebees and butterflies, as well as raising funds for Amma's Charities. As Ricky said, "Members of the public were interested in attracting and looking after smaller birds like wrens, robins and tits in their gardens and making sure they had enough food and good habitats for them.... [And] without bumblebees and honeybees, our food chain would fall apart and hunger would be widespread. We sold a number of bee-logs and hope to provide these at future GreenFriends events as well".
A hard-working, flexible team made this fundraising event possible, great weather made the weekend even more enjoyable, and all worked together in good spirits, spreading awareness of Amma's message in our local community.
Thanks to Amma's Northwest satsang group for this inspiring post. Have a look at the slideshow or ammairelandinfo's Gallery for great photos of the event.
