The Edinburgh Tool Library is the UK's first tool library, for a small membership fee you get access to a huge selection of tools that you would otherwise need to buy or rent. They currently operate out of Leith and Portobello and are open biweekly, they also organize regular workshops for skillsharing.

More tool libraries like this around the country (and the world) would mean literally seizing the means of production.

I was really down and miserable over the weekend, but I am feeling slightly perkier this morning, and so I have penned a solarpunk blog post for my readers: theunconventionalgardener.com/

The idea being that I will focus on, and be a source of, light and hope rather than despair.

Whilst people need to know that the planet is in an atrocious state, the constant barrage of negativity doesn't seem to be motivating anybody to do anything about it. Hopefully solarpunk's stories about positive futures can be the carrot to science's stick.

Hey, so it's looking likely that I'll be kicked off my Masters course if I can't raise the funds for my last tuition fee payment by the end of June. This is over £2000.

I finish in Oct, I can't quit this close but I've also had a change in circumstances which means I can't afford it, even with 2 jobs.

The shame of asking for help is less embarrassing than getting so close, putting so much time and effort into it & not graduating 🤞
