Description

All right kids, this is it in many ways. We've worked towards building a community here. We've had dinners and fun, we've worked charity events and gotten to know a bit about each other, this is where some of the practicalities come into play.

Please join me at the Pistol Social Club for a series of workshops based on Voluntary Value Exchange from our wonderful community members, both new and old alike. And then have some hearty vegan vegetable stew.

Workshops start at 3:30pm - they are as follows:

3:45-4:45pm
* Laura Poe offering information on nutritional eating and living
* Kevin Decker on brewing Kombucha

4:45-5:45
* Megan Grimwood on starting raised beds and community gardening
* Dave Lawrence on local food systems and the practical methods of community gardening

5:45-6:45
* Katie Coble and Janay Andrews on stitching holes in clothes
* REMEMBER... bring your clothes that have holes and we WILL patch them

7:00-Dinner Stew, warm bread and cake for dessert.

Sadly, unless I find work RIGHT NOW, this MAY be the last SS Event until I can get back on my feet. It has been an honor and a privilege getting to know and work with all of you - Thank you from the very bottom of my heart. Come bring your friends, and have a great time, learn some things or just enjoy the company of peeps interested in bettering the world around them, Dane.

Donations are obviously accepted - if I can get enough I'll keep it going another week... we'll just play it by ear- thanks again.
