Notes from meeting at Penthouse:

Post-Meeting Catchup

Present—Dawn, Tom; apologies—Barbara, Belinda; absent—Edwina; Minutes—Tom

After expenses we have $52.20 koha left (the first time we've had excess). Tom to note expenses from last meeting.

Feedback from Jayne who talked to the people around her at the meeting: most people came for the topic (which was permaculture). One person who knew about permaculture already didn't learn anything new from Andrew's talk but was inspired by the movie on Cuba. » Read more
