material use 

@socalledunitedstates This one has a quick digest of available plastics and their appropriateness in the garden:

I had learned from other gardeners to really only rely on number-2 HDPE plastics, but apparently the others are ok for shorter term use according to this.

Solarpunk Action Week official dates: Spring 2019

This year's first action week will take place on the first full week of March (3rd-9th)! Start planning and organizing now for a week of community building and practical projects, and make sure to post about your actions with the hashtag so we can share them here!

Ideas for actions will be posted here as well as our official tumblr, solarpunkactionweek.tumblr.com and you can find even more resources on the Sunbeam City wiki wiki.sunbeam.city

Please boost this post and spread the word, and we'll see you punks in planting season! ✊💕

@actionweek A good idea for action week is to have a fermented food swap. I think I'm going to try to lacto-ferment some carrots for today.

Happy ! If you're doing work with wood and aren't being very particular about its strength, shape, or quality, try using pallets! Just drive around and look by the dumpsters behind businesses and you should see some laying around for you to take after a brief talk with the manager - you can also check craigslist and 1001 Pallets: 1001pallets.com/pallet-classif

I once found a place with huge stacks of pallets and crates on craigslist, then used them to build garden boxes and a rainwater collector (pics below!)

Good morning, punks and sunbeams! Today is , so use this opportunity to share your skills in the hashtag and peruse it to pick up new ones!

Late last night @scintillatinator materialized out of nowhere (?) to design this solarpunk emblem idea I'd had!

The gear represents technology, workers, and by extension socialism, whereas the sun represents sustainability and nature, with the colors being the same as the green anarchist flag. The idea came from @Wewereseeds and @starwall 's flag design so big thanks to them!

This design is creative commons, feel free to use it for whatever solarpunky non-evil purposes you have - no credit or permission needed!

Anunciando la Semana de Acción 2019! Una semana para plantar, construir, reparar, crear, compartir y dar conciencia sobre el movimiento Solarpunk! Próxima primavera, 2019— las fechas exactas aún deben ser anunciadas (por ahora, con cierta inclinación a marzo tardío)

Mientras tanto, puedes seguirme aquí y en Tumblr (solarpunkactionweek.tumblr.com) y rebloggear para difundir la palabra!

Just got back from a and organized by several groups in my area! A group of barbers also comes here every other week to give free haircuts to our houseless neighbors

All would be great ideas for Action Week! Get in touch with local activist organizations if you want to plan an event like this!

Sunbeam City 🌻

Sunbeam City is a anticapitalist, antifascist solarpunk instance that is run collectively.
