alley Permaculture Guild (VPG) is holding a year-end potluck dinner and pop-up market to celebrate the new year in December 7 from 6-8:30 P.M.


"If If you have any plants, handmade goodies and/or crafts that you'd like to bring to sell or trade, please do," says Rachel Symington of the pop-up market scheduled for December  7 from 6-8:30pm.


In Jaurary, VPG will be holding what they call "Active Hope Workshop" series featuring a discussion of the book “Active Hope,” by the Buddhist eco-activist Joanna Macy.


According to Symington, the book has been said to have "helped thousands of people all over the world to address the root psychological barriers that keep us from facing the mess that we’re in".


Who: Anyone who is concerned about climate change and wants to do more. Or anyone who is already acting and wants to strengthen their commitment.

When: SIX sessions, every other week, starting in early January 2017 (exact dates and times TBD – it’ll depend on everyone’s schedules)

Where: Chilliwack (exact location TBD)

Tickets: $45 (including a copy of Active Hope valued at $25).

Email us your name and phone number here and we’ll get in touch. Please respond by December 17th so we know who’s interested.
