This week’s table at the Farmers’ Market was great, and eight people signed up for the mailing list — welcome! Kaitlan would still appreciate help manning the table, so if you’d like to volunteer just reply to this post. Don’t worry about how much time you have available. All help is gratefully appreciated, and in the process you can learn about Transition by doing Transition. 🙂
We noticed two community events at the Market which seemed appropriate to share. We copied down all the info, so check them out below.
