Many interests and concerns were raised at the first meeting around how to advance sustainability and build community, with groups breaking out in food, transporation, energy, education, the local economy, health care, and so forth. These groups will be provided with time to continue to meet and discuss how they might move forward.
But we also encourage new people with additional ideas to come and express what concerns them during the opening general session of the meeting. New groups can form as interests dictate. Light refreshments will be provided.
