    Hello! I am looking for people who would like to start affinity groups that will meet locally and then convene regionally for a Bridge Building between artists and scientists/engineers. The main goal is to have an Open Meeting plan with brainstorming and other projects proposed by the participants, creating 2 opportunities for big group discussion, and several tracks to follow for a long weekend this fall- suggested locale, my place in the Smoky Mountains National Park area of Gatlinburg, TN Please feel free to respond here. I might create a separate meet-up page later, so networking between groups could be facilitated.

    Very excited to attend this series. I hope to learn some practical, magical, herbal therapy to help soothe my yearning to peek inside the Apothecary's lifestyle!
