Updates of recent community action…

We completed our 2nd Transition Town Study group.  Around 20 amazing folks came together every Tuesday night to discuss local issues of community resilience, health and sustainability.  Our first community action group sprouted from this study group; check out theLocal Economy group!  The Buena Vista Watershed group also sprang from this gathering.

We completed our 1st Treekaya Roots Immersion (Organic Gardening & Composting Workshop).  Mark Boyko – ‘Papa Earth’ guided 10 community members in preparing healthy organic soil, planting basics, efficient irrigation systems & various composting methods.

We hosted several fun community gatherings with great organic local food, thought provoking films & inspiring discussion!  We also facilitated our first Awakening the Dreamer Symposium!
