MIMIC THIS! When you get invited to events 3000 miles away (or 20 of them just across town), use COPY & PASTE with the really interesting events to seed your own community's plans for similar events. Why start from scratch.... Beg, borrow and mimic! More....
We've moved from Arlington to Dayton VA (an hour from Charlottesville) and are interested in local resilient community initatives. I've become active in John Robb's new photowiki (MiiU.org) for resilient places, and have created a profile of Dayton at http://MiiU.org/wiki/Dayton . We're interested in exploring permaculture and 3D printing opportunities here - will welcome any ideas or connections you may have on this. Hope you and/or others there can add pages to MiiU as well on resiliency-related initiatives in the Charlottesville area!
