Second Sunday Support
Sunday, March 12, 2017
Third floor ballroom of the Keystone Building, 619 Commercial
Community resilience grows more important every day, but personal resilience is also vital, and many are feeling deeply troubled by current events. This will be a safe place to gather and share one’s feelings about what is happening in and to our world. Sessions are planned on second Sundays through April. Two facilitators who have a good deal of experience working with groups guide the sessions. No need for RSVP – just show up.
Seventh Generation Supper: The Woolley Food Forest: Using Permaculture to Grow a Resilient Community
Tuesday, March 28
Anacortes Senior Center, 1701 22nd St.
Come learn about the Woolley Food Forest Association, an effort to create a two-acre, low-maintenance Food Forest in partnership with the Sedro Woolley Helping Hands Food Bank. The project actively creates a more resilient, skilled, and self-reliant community by training volunteers to maintain and harvest food, providing a portion of the harvest to the food bank, and teaching the use of permaculture principles to produce a self-sustaining food ecosystem. Its design includes features and space to host classes and events that celebrate and promote community. Click here for more details, or here to see a poster.
