    • we would like more info
  • Zimt [Maxime]
    • bigger amount in good quality would be nice
    • also paprika powder and garlic powder are interesting
    • there is a store mentioned in #kanthaus-food

4. To do

Newest tasks on top

  • [ ] proof-reading heating page in handbook [kate]
  • [ ] fix/improve K20-1 staircase night light (can ask Tilmann for details about wiring)
  • [ ] put kanthaus logo on the new beer benches and tables
  • [ ] curtains for the dragon room that prevent passersby from staring inside
  • [ ] cut branch from tree in the compost corner (after leaves fall)
  • [ ] cover the pipes from the rest of the room in the snack kitchen (wooden board angle?) []
    • [tilmann] maybe directly go for drywall as final measure?
      • [maxime] that would be the right but more difficult remediation indeed. I looked at options to hack a wooden corner, but didn't find satisfying options in the wood shed, so I'll leave there.
  • [ ] fill holes in Snack kitchen floor where moths breed
    • it started but it's not done yet, unclear what is the right material
      • [doug] recommend a bit of building foam for a base, then concrete
  • [ ] fix Daria trailer back lights [Dorota]
    • [Martin] Cables got pinched, I suggest redoing the whole thing. Also, use a diode to prevent over voltage.
  • [ ] replace shower curtain by (plexi)glass construction

5. Discussion & Announcements

Round 1

  • [Martin] Spitzboden DONE! Do we want to establish some rules for the use of the k20-4 or just see what happens?
    • should not be filled with stuff before cleaning if it's not needed
    • general "stuff storage" guideline would be nice, there was a proposal from Doug in PlaMe#1 we could get back to
      • but not making it too big so it's never tackled
    • Martin writes a proposal (just for the Spitzboden) and posts it on Slack
  • [Doug] Are the Kanthaus-CanonC2025_... virtual printers at all usable, or can we remove them?
    • Janina thinks it's a leftover from old times (meant to make printing easier, but than settings changed) and not needed anymore
    • Maxime thinks he uses it
    • let's also make a Slack discussion out of this
  • [Larissa] The Haus- und Wagenrat e.V. would like to have the rights to one of our pictures ( to use for a flyer for one of their projects and would even pay us something for it, if we want to. any thought, resistance? here is the mail:
    • they already used the picture in the brochure about different forms of association
    • instead of paying money they also offered free counseling to us
    • proposal to license the picture CreativeCommons (CC-BY) and just ask for Kanthaus to be credited, maybe in the form "Kanthaus ( - CC-BY"
    • there was a discussion about using pictures in the past
    • general support in the round, only using money if it makes sense for them (e.g. because of a funding)
    • Larissa will do a Slack point
  • [kito, Kate] ToI!
    • schedule and preparation tasks for you
      • first stage soon Nov 7! Whole morning together. See invite on Slack main channel with prep task.
    • who's invited, who will be invited? visitors? feelings? -> final decision in TOI1
      • could be overwhelming for new visitors and also slow the process down too much, too much explanation needed
      • "alumnis" (like Nathalie, Thore, Matthias) participating could be something different, but probably they are not really interested
      • evaluation for Klara before TOI2 might be nice, also some concerns if it works out
    • it will be great!
  • [kate] verschenkeladen name. i have called it Verschenkeladen Wurzen on the green friday poster. i hoped over time to add it to google maps and create a fb page. does it have an official name already? i felt it made sense to have it's location in the name, or? happy to hear your thoughts when I return.
    • [Antonin] maybe start an Ukuvota to let people propose and vote for a name?
    • [Janina] Verschenkeladen was its official name up until now. Could be changed if you see the need.
    • Slack and Ukuvota is a good idea
  • [Janina] Mika's party
    • no clear plan, but probably caketime in the dining room first (or outside if the weather is unexpectedly great), then playtime in piano and/or yoga room.
    • there will be people everywhere on Saturday afternoon, hope that it's okay...
    • I'll tell people about the covid situation which hopefully resolves itself until then anyway
    • ahmed, dima, franzi, unkraut, phillip from kita and maybe more peeps :bird: wanted to come

Round 2

  • [Martin] Compost. let's switch more compost for better compost. Because we have more than what we need, and it is not great. First step, less and better food waste to compost=>more waste to Biomüll. I propose to add Biomüll to the snack kitchen, equally reachable as compost. Then redefine what goes where. Then it will be much easier to balance it. I can feel resposible to materialize it.
    • general support
    • move further discussion to Slack or next CoMe
  • [kito] CryptoKüfa (

6. Task lottery & food planning
