What's coming up:

Sept 15, Saturday: Wild Foods and Foraging workshop, Dexter. 9 AM to noon. Meet
at 9 AM at Abbott Mem Library basement. Ram Das Singh is excited to
share his knowledge of the area's wild foods and hopes this meeting can
be the start of a regular group effort to help each other learn about
the food around us. Bring your experiences and enthusiasm, and dress
according to the weather, because we hope to get outside if possible. 277-4221 Sam Brown or 270-3504 Ram Das
Sept 21-23, Fri Sat Sun: Common Ground Country Fair, Unity. 9 AM to 5 PM

Oct 5, Friday: free movie night "You've Been Trumped", 7 -9 PM. Abbott Mem Library Basement. "This
poignant documentary follows a determined group of Scottish locals who
take on American business mogul Donald Trump when he tries to buy up an
environmentally fragile stretch of coastland in Scotland to build a
luxury golf resort." Might be interesting to see any parallels to our
current East/West Highway kerfuffel. 277-4221 Sam Brown
Oct 9, Tuesday: Freecycle Barn Build?, Dexter. 8
AM, Mid Maine Solid Waste station. POSSIBLE beginning construction day
of small barn at the Transfer Station to serve as home for freecycling
(a place to take stuff that you don't want anymore but which is too good
to throw in the dump). Small group of construction-savvy individuals
needed to get foundation and floor done (later stages can possible use
more volunteers). This Freecycle Barn project is inspired by the Town
of Pittsfield's version, and we'll need volunteers to tend the Barn on
Saturdays. 277-4221 Sam Brown and Bev Crockett, or 564-2256 Will
Vandermast for more details.
Oct 9, Tuesday: Steering Group meeting, Dexter. 6 PM to 8 PM. Abbott Mem Library. Come help organize how DDATT helps the community.
Oct 13, Saturday: Starting a Community Garden discussion in Dexter, 9 AM to noon. Deb
Burdin has been quietly working on getting some gardening space
available for use by Dexter area people who don't have any, and she
wants to share her ideas and hear yours. Come prepared to make this
long-discussed idea actually take shape! Linda Tisdale will facilitate
the discussion for the group. 924-5172, Linda Tisdale.
