Potlatch with a Purpose

Join the public kickoff of Transition San Lorenzo Valley and help celebrate their certification as the 69th official Transition initiative in the U.S.

Sunday, June 13, 4–6 pm
The Satellite Telework Center, Community Room
6265 Highway 9, Felton

Potlatch means "give away," basically. A potlatch is a tradition of the Native American tribes of the Pacific Northwest coast, whereby people share food and give away items that can enrich their neighbor's lives. The "purpose" part is small-group discussions about ways to make San Lorenzo Valley communities more resilient and self-reliant as we cope with increasing oil and gas prices as
supplies decrease, climate change, and continued economic insecurity.

For the food part: Please bring appetizers or finger foods, locally produced or purchased or homemade, plus beverages (glasses or cups welcome but optional)

For the give-and-get part: Bring small household or decor items, clothing, books, CDs, DVDs. If nobody takes what you bring, you promise to take it home.

Children welcome. RSVPs greatly appreciated on their Facebook page or their website: transitionslv.org (see Events on both).

Phone 831-704-6758 (704-6SLV)
