December 19th is going to be a wonderful day. I’ve sent out the invitations (which came out better than expected after a snag in the process) and begun working with some friends to cook up vegan desserts for the evening.
It’s going to be our first event – a creative brainstorming party with a call to commitment. Our vision has been to create a community for the people by the people, rather than swooping in with all the answers and programs. I will be facilitating conversations among the people to organize something organically. Participatory planning can be difficult, but with some wine, sweets, and creative activities I am sure we will find our way.
