Things that happened

Around Kanthaus

  • Some of us went watching the documentary "Capital in the Twenty-First Century" at Villa Klug
  • There was a visit of Kreuzgasse 1
  • We had a chat in the garden
  • All Kanthaus residents (the 5 of them) went together to Wolfsberg
  • Talita made huge progress in the Yoga Room
  • Our garden gave us a lot of ripe tomatoes and basilicum
  • The clock in the dining room was replaced by a much more accurate and less noisy Penguin of Time, which let us know when it is time, and also allows to have meals in silence without hearing a ticking

In the wider world

  • The 6th IPCC report was published, stating that climate change is going faster that previously anticipated
  • After 20 years of war, Talibans took Kabul and now control the whole of Afghanistan. A new refugee crisis is to be expected.

  • [ ] make k20 garden door easily closable from outside (or acquire a new door)
  • [ ] secure wash kitchen sink
  • [ ] think about plastic waste container to be used in dumpster kitchen
    • [maxime] what about using a big cardboard that could be emptied in the yellow bin, and replaced from time to time when too nasty (we associated recommendation to empty liquids before throwing there)

  • Ventilation preparation:
    • [ ] Tear down chimney in Snack Kitchen
    • [ ] Tear down chimney in communal sleeping room
    • [ ] Tear down chimney in dining room
    • [ ] Tear down chimney in piano room

5. Discussion & Announcements

Round 1

  • [matthias] Do we want a "Nick-trailer like" trailer? Matthias would like to build it for approx. 280€. Would feature perfect suitability for green boxes, lights and a "tool/waterbottle storage"
    • Maybe Nathanael can be used in the mean time? Do we really need a small trailer?
    • On the other hand having more than one nice dumpsterdiving trailer for simultaneous dumpster diving might make sense
    • People are happily invited to participate in the slack thread
    • Might be brought up again next week
  • [maxime] should there be a task lottery this week, or should we do like last week?
    • Spontaneous cooking :-)
  • [Doug] there is a lot of support and no resistance to Maxime's post for the roof month framework
    • Roof month from 2021-10-11 - 2021-11-07
    • FFJ group will be here all the time then (2021-10-11 - 2021-10-24), some confusion as we thought there was only one week overlapping -> Communication with the group again
    • We will wait for their feedback and then talk about it again
  • [Thore] It´s time to call Felix from Landgut Nemt to coordinate the aftercrop actions. Can someone do this? I'll be back in Wurzen at the 29 of August and can imagine to organize then some actions with someone together? Anyone interested?
    • No reactions in the (small) room, let's move the discussion to Slack?

Round 2

  • [matthias] I added chimney tear down tasks in the todo list above from the ventilation team. The list follows our priorities in which we want to work. We think, it might be good to announce early and have the possibility to do work already now, when the house is not so crowded. In the step of installing the ventilation later this year, we would then properly close and seal what comes up behind the chimneys :-)
  • [Maxime] fairtailer?
