This Thursday we are hosting a zero-waste potluck at the Cedar Mountain Canteen on June 24th at 6 pm. This will be a low-key gathering. We will enjoy a potluck and bring back our zero-waste tips clothesline. What is that? Folks have shared their ideas about how to move to zero waste by creating a flag that we hang on a clothesline. You can read suggestions from others and create your own flag to add to the line. We provide the material scraps and the markers. It is a fun way to share. All are welcome. Please bring a covered dished to share if you are able. If not, please join us. We would love to feed you. Please bring your own non-disposable place setting too. Plant-based meals are encouraged. All food is welcome. We have had so many delicious plant-based meals. It is an amazing meal. Looking forward to sharing a meal together.
Leif Olsen treated us to an incredible discussion about mycology. Wow, the stuff is everywhere, thank goodness. We had an amazing turnout and the food was divine. Thank you Leif for sharing your time and knowledge and thanks to everyone who shared their time and delicious goodies. Over 40 people enjoying the evening and our trash can didn't even notice. Thanks everyone for supporting zero-waste events. It is so kind to not leave a lot of garbage for folks to clean up.
We need help! We have more demand for composting services than we can handle. We are looking for someone to help us increase composting in the county. We have about 6 - 8 hours of work a week, some flexible hours. We can provide all the training. If you are interested, please let us know. We would love to help someone start their own company and help provide services we can't keep up with. You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call at 304-482-3062. Thanks! Kim & John
We had our first gathering of 2021 June 3rd at the Cedar Mountain Canteen with a presentation from Anna of Mountaintrue and learned how to be good neighbors to the Little River, which is beside our beer garden. It was magical seeing everyone together for the first time in over a year. The food was fantastic and it was a joyous occasion.
