All are welcome! Regular gatherings (1-4) AND focus groups (12-1) are free, require no advance notice to attend and take place in Gardiner at Christ Church, 1 Dresden Ave.
Get curious about how YOU can participate in SMM. 

January 14th SMM PEER TO PEER FOCUS GROUP:Soil: The Great Connector” 
Join Samuel Kaymen, Mark Fulford and Noah Wentworth at this meet up from
12-1pm in the sitting room adjacent to our large meeting space.

“The soil is the great connector of lives, the source and destination of all. It is the healer and restorer and resurrector, by which disease passes into health, age into youth, death into life. Without proper care for it we can have no community, because without proper care for it we can have no life.”

With Wendell Berry’s words, we will usher in the New Year for Slow Money Maine with a peer-to-peer focus group on “SOIL”, preceding our regular gathering. Mark Fulford, Noah Wentworth and Samuel Kaymen will facilitate this conversation, sharing their passions, knowledge and experience with anyone wishing to be in dialogue about this theme.

Tom Settlemire will provide a New Year’s offering, bringing perspectives from decades of work with animals, plants, farms and community building.

We hope you can join us!
