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).

    Are we meeting upstairs? I'll be the girl with a huge camping backpack.

    Do you recommend wearing galoshes? And maybe bringing a change of clothes? Also, are we going to meet in Manhattan? There is a large space at 60 Wall Street open to the public, I know there have been gatherings of working groups from #OccupyWallStreet who met there regularly (before "Sandy" that is), unless another space has been decided upon. Thanks!

      Hello Jeannette,

      you should wear whatever footwear is most comfortable to you... we don't usually actually "dive". Rather, we open bags that are on the curbside. we decide each month for the next month the locations of our tours, and we already have decided on the locations for January's meetings and tours. We are always open to have meetings. It will be posted soon. It is going to be in Manhattan.
