Community Conversation in Brattleboro

Post Oil Solutions will continue its 2nd Wednesday of the month Community Conversations on Wednesday, March 10 at 7 p.m., at the Elliot Street Cafe, corner of Elm and Elliot Streets, in Brattleboro.

We are inviting people to a facilitated conversation around the question: How do we work together to make our communities healthier and more sustainable? We want to hear your ideas around food, energy, transportation, health care, housing, the local economy and so forth, as well as how these ideas can be turned into action plans.

Groups that were initiated earlier will also be provided ample time to continue meeting, and forming their next steps, while new groups will be encouraged to form and meet as interests dictate. Light refreshments will be provided.

For more information call 869-2141 or info@postoilsolutions.org.
