Upcoming Events and Some Really Cool Resources

From: Lisa G.
Sent on: Sunday, July 12, 2009 8:59 PM
Hi Everyone. I just wanted to give you a heads up on some upcoming events, clarify a few things, and share some resources.

First of all, I want to clarify that the skillshare on Sunday from 4-5pm will lead directly into the potluck, even though they?re listed as separate events.

Second, regarding the recipe swap, feel free to bring a recipe that?s different from the dish you bring. Just try to keep it seasonal?bring a recipe that uses what?s in season right now.

And don?t forget to bring stuff for the free swap table!

Here is a list of our upcoming events. There will probably be some others added soon, including a two day Urban Permaculture Workshop in the fall (!)

And here are some great resources:

-This month?s Make Magazine focuses on ?Remaking America? and is filled with fantastic articles related to sustainable, urban, d.i.y. living. You can get a glimpse on the website, but you need to pick it up in hard copy to read it. The MIT bookstore in Kendall Square sells it (a long with probably a bunch of other bookstores in the area).

-A recent NY Times article on urban homesteading.

Two great websites on Urban Homesteading:

Have a great weekend everyone! And I hope to see lots of you on Sunday at the Skillshare/Potluck/Recipe Swap/Stuff Swap!

Best,
Lisa
