Saturday, July 25th, 6 pm Potluck dinner at the Bovina Center Community Hall. Burnett Farms and Transition Catskills present an evening of food, drink, song and story. If you grow plants or raise animals and would like to celebrate with others who do the same, then bring a plate or a bottle to pass, and come eat, drink, be merry, and share tales of endurance and sustainability. "As farmers, we experience life's great adventure as a daily occurrence. The challenges of survival, mindfulness, and problem-solving define our relationship to Nature, to ourselves and to those around us. As we labor, invent, wonder, fail, grow and ultimately bring in a crop, we have achieved a level of "sustainability" on the physical level, and also in body, mind and spirit." - Steve Burnett The Community Hall is located at 1866 County Highway 6 in Bovina Center.
Wednesday July 15th 5 to 8 pm Summerfields—654 Main St—Margaretville Green Drinks are informal get-togethers where people who care about the environment meet up for cocktails and conversation. Come along and you’ll be made welcome! Just say, “Are you green?” and we will look after you and introduce you to whoever is there. A Green Drinks gathering is a great way of catching up with people you know, and also for making new contacts. These events are simple and unstructured, but many attendees have found employment, made friends, developed new ideas, done deals and experienced serendipity. Research has shown that the more opportunities people have to connect with others and share fresh ideas, the more creative and productive they are. So come mingle, have a cocktail and join the dialogue. You never know when a conversation will lead to synchronicity, transforming an idea into a reality. Cash bar and food. Although Summerfields is known as a steakhouse, they have added vegetarian and vegan fare to their menu—the vegetable paninis are fabulous! And they're offering $5 large pizzas to everyone in our group. For more information contact Kristina Zill — Coordinator for Transition Catskills— firstname.lastname@example.org
