Sustainable Capitol Hill January: Alternative Economies & Bad Gift Exchange

Anybody a little burned out on all the buy-centric holiday "cheer?" Professor Don Comstock will be discussing the financial crisis, and how all of our current crises are intertwined. Don’t worry, it won’t be a lecture! More of a conversation, so bring your questions! Debra Morrison of 4th Corner Exchange, a local time bank / barter group will also be on hand to speak about how to join an alternative economy here in Seattle. After the talks (which should last about 20-30 minutes), we will swap gifts we got over the holidays that aren’t our style. Bring those funky sweaters your Aunt Flo got you, or those hoop earrings you would never wear, and swap them with your neighbors.

We'll meet at 6:30pm for potluck and start the meeting at 7:00pm
Hope to see you there!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
