FIRST ANNUAL BELLINGHAM ABUNDANCE SWAP at Bellingham Unitarian Fellowship

December 6, 2011 from 6pm to 8pm

Screening of Award Winning Film, "Bag It" at The Pickford Film Center

June 22, 2011 from 5:30pm to 7pm
When average American guy Jeb Berrier (“not a tree-hugger,” he says) decides to stop using plastic bags, it not only ushers in a new era of awareness in his own life, it prompts him to delve into the issue of plastic bag usage--including those countries and communities that are attempting to embrace a bag-free existence--an issue that's ripe for Bellingham awareness and discussion. Bag It Bellingham will be at the film to discuss the latest updates and plans for the proposed bag reduction…See More

Hi Jill, I attended your 10-10 Us Launch gathering at the Blue Horse Gallery.
You might be interested in connecting with a TW group that Rob started here weeks ago as part of the 10-10 and 350 movement, Here is a link, or just look under the 'Groups' tab:
"350.org Workgroup aka 10-10-10" - a TW group:
http://transitionwhatcom.ning.com/group/101010

Also, I've heard that the Perennial Project that Chris W and Tristan help initiate will be again receiving plants and gathering volunteers to plant again in our children's school gardens. You might want to connect in with them.
