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).

    Plus: There was a written agenda-very helpful. There's a lot going on in this group, and they tried to cover it all. There are multiple roles to fill for the meeting, so there's a chance to plug in/be involved from the get go. I don't know if this is a minus, but the group is very focused once they get started, in part because they have to start the 101 and tour at 9pm sharp. So if you come late, don't expect to be greeted, etc. Just pull up a stair step, start listening, and chime in if you have something to contribute. To that end, if you're new to it all, I'd suggest the first time skipping the meeting and instead coming at 9pm to get the 101 (good even for old pros to hear the specifics of the group's etiquette/modus operandi) and/or attending one of the other more "social" events like the freegan feast. Then, if you like the group and want to be more involved, come to a 7pm (Or is it 730?) meeting.
