Freegan Meeting
Help make freeganism happen in NYC! After brief report-backs on ongoing projects, we will have an open, facilitated discussion on a topic of freegan interest. Bring your ideas and opinions and let's talk! We welcome both those with experience taking part in non-hierarchical consensus-based groups and those participating for the first time. At 9pm, we will end our business meeting and have a brief, newcomer-friendly discussion about freeganism before the trash tour. The meeting is NOT open to media. 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).

What we're about

Do you want to reduce your consumer impact on earth, humans and animals? Are you concerned about the wastefulness of our consumer society? Learn how to find useable goods in the refuse of our throw-away culture, to identify wild edibles, to repair and rebuild bikes, clothing and more. Learn more about our group at our website, freegan.info (http://freegan.info/?page=home). And join our mailing lists on Riseup ( https://lists.riseup.net/www/home ) organized by what you're interested in — events only, discussion, a spontaneous dumpster diving list, and more. Search by keyword "freegannyc".

If you are mainly interested in dumpster diving in NYC consider going on your own or in small groups rather than on our "trash tours" which are oriented more for learning than for acquisition. Our dumpster directories for Manhattan (http://freegan.info/freegan-directories/dumpster-directory/freegan-guide-to-new-york-city/manhattan/) and Brooklyn (http://freegan.info/freegan-directories/brooklyn/) are great resources.
