Ramsay Inspirational Series: Garbage Warrior

March 17th, 2014

garbage warrior

garbage warrior is a 2007 film about architect mike reynolds, inventor of the earthship style of building.

what is an earthship? its a building style designed to be autonomous, minimizing its reliance on public utilities and fossil fuels. the ‘garbage’ adjective comes from the fact that local resources are utilized, such as tires, cans and bottles.

we might not want to build our city with earthships alone, but what the underlying concepts are and how reynolds goes to the highest level to make it even possible to explore these concepts is fascinating and could soon be our passionate plight.

saturday march 22nd we will be watching this great film so come on down and join us.

Ramsay and Inglewood “Food for Neighbours” Party

June 22nd, 2013

Hey Ramsay and Inglewood

You’re invited to the Ramsay Community Hall between 4:00 and 7:00pm for a free BBQ.

Bring your family. Bring your friends. Bring the people who are staying with you.

We’ll get together, have great food, and get organized for the task ahead.

Please bring your own dishes, cutlery and glassware as we need to conserve water and it’s difficult to get to a store when so many roads are closed.

If the rains starts again, we’ll move the party inside the Hall.

Contact Kevin at 403.680.0854 if you have questions

Join Us for an Ice Liner Folding Party, this Saturday at the Rink

May 8th, 2013

You may have noticed that the Ramsay rink ice laster longer this last winter. The Recreation Committee installed a liner under the ice, which prevented melting and provided more skating time.

On Saturday May 11 at 1:00pm, we will put the ice liner away until the next skating season.

As you can imagine, the liner is not small, so we could use some help with the moving and folding. It shouldn’t take too long if we have enough people, and  we will provide food and beverages.

Can you give us a hand? If you can help, please contact recreation@ramsaycalgary.ca
