Have a skill? Share it! Need a skill? Learn it!

Our new monthly Wolfville SkillShare is designed to connect those with skills with those who want to learn, helping us become a more knowledgeable, resilient community!

Our first SkillShare will be on Saturday October 28th. Learn how to alter or mend your clothes (or costume!), and join us for a clothing exchange (bring what you're no longer using and swap it for something new-to-you!).

If you have sewing skills (hand or machine) and are interested in sharing your knowledge, meeting people and contributing to the up-skilling of our community, please let us know! We are looking for volunteers for the October event!

SKILLSHARE – OCTOBER:
Mending and Altering Clothing, plus clothing exchange
Saturday October 28
2 – 4 pm
17 Highland Ave, Wolfville

“Issues of Trust: Personal, Relational, Community”

As a way of deepening and strengthening our connections to each other and to the topics of Transition, we are offering a facilitated reading group. We will share ideas, thoughts and questions about materials that support the principles and values of Transition.

At the last meeting we discussed the idea of readings on a local currency or time bank, with a view to possibly creating a Transition project on these lines. As we did the research for this, what came up repeatedly is that all such activities require a basis of trust in the community. So this month’s readings focus on the impact of trust (or lack thereof) on individuals, relationships, and the wider community.

Please review the links below *before* the October 22nd meeting so we can share thoughts, questions and ideas when we are together!
