Sustainable ME: A Read & Do Group

Sustainable ME is a book group for readers and doers.

It meets on WEDNESDAY once a month at 6:30 PM in the Seminar Room.


Working on a tricky homestead project? Wish you had a garden planning buddy? Looking for your tribe of DIYers? Try our new book group for nonfiction readers interested in learning about projects and making them happen. Together we’ll read nonfiction books about skills and try them out! Join our team of literary explorers as we hash out our visions of sustainability, green cleaners, working bikes, useful stuff, and   edible yards. Come share what you’ve learned.

Coming up

  • June 21st 6:30 PM – 7:30 Bokashi Composting Seminar Room
    • Join us as we create bokashi bran and a bokashi compost bin similar to those detailed by Adam Footer in Bokashi Composting: Scraps to Soil in Weeks. Will it work? Have knowledge we should know? Come share your expertise or sense of adventure. No prior reading necessary.
