local events: monthly anouncement

Current issue:

May 2014 (PDF, 156 KB, opens in a separate tab).

Our monthly announcements are LONG. . . but there is a method to our madness.

Our Monthly Announcement is used to support the educational work of the discussion circles we sponsor, on various topics related to Simple Living and Sustainability. 

Once people finish a circle, they are usually looking for ways to put what they have learned into action.

People's interests will vary, as will their geography.  That is why we try to include announcements from a broad geographic area (Annapolis, Baltimore, Suburban Maryland, DC, and Frederick) and covering a broad range of events (e.g., Invasive Weed Pulls, Watersheds, Nature Walks, Vegetarian Dinners, Energy-Efficient Homes, Co-Housing, Green Building, Composting, Solstice/Equinox Celebrations, Peace Dances).
