Freegan Meeting

Help make freeganism happen in NYC! At our organizational meetings we discuss and decide on future activities and group direction. Participants are encouraged to step up and introduce new freegan projects with the support of the group or take roles such as facilitating meetings or bottom-lining events.  We welcome both those with experience taking part in non-hierarchical consensus-based groups and those participating for the first time!

Newcomers are always welcome and encouraged to attend our full meeting, but if you ONLY want an introduction to freeganism and to dumpster dive, DON'T sign up for this meeting! See the next one (Freeganism 101 and Trash Tour, later the same evening).

    BTW, a good place for the NEXT meeting might be Pret a Manger or Panera. They are BOTH very Food Waste aware and donate ALL their leftovers to Homeless Shelters. They might even GIVE us some bread!
    But it IS courteous to buy some coffee at least if we are going to use it as a meeting space! (See my rant on the other page...)
    Anyway, I hope you have a fine meeting and see you at the next one,
    I hope! : )

      Thank you Garry! "My bad" for not having taken care of the location (and other stuff related to The Freegan Calendar of Events) as it was (and is) my responsibility. My apologies to one and all. Sorry for the delay and inconvenience.

    Hi, I'm going to bow out of this since there is still no location. Too short notice! I like to plan ahead. Sorry : (

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
