Why Build a Local Economy? Series continues on Thu, Oct. 17

The BALE series on Why Build a Local Economy continues on tonight, October 17, at the Chandler in Randolph. Next up in the series is a night called “Fixing the Future” . . .

. . . will highlight the many new ventures that are budding all over the region, as well as offer a sampling of very inspiring initiatives that are happening across the country. Here’s a taste of what you’ll get:

  • Visit the Arts Bus parked out front of the Chandler
  • At 6:30 p.m. enjoy great food from the Black Krim Tavern, which sources much of its food from area farms such as Pebble Brook Farm in West Brookfield.
  • Enjoy a musical interlude with young cellist Ella Williams, a student at The Sharon Academy.
  • View the film, “Fixing the Future” – motivating look at communities around the United States using sustainable and innovative approaches to create jobs and build prosperity.
  • Hear of the great new, creative economy ideas that are already present in our region: Prof. Chris Dutton about the Vermont Technical College’s new food and dairy processing facility that will include community involvement; Marjorie Ryerson’s PoemTown coming to Randolph in April; Karen Ganey’s work with the Upper Valley Timebank; Dan Kinney’s participation in the cooperatively-owned Catamount Solar company; Todd Tyson’s description of Royalton Community Radio; Teo Zagar’s role with the Barnard Community Trust’s restoration of the Barnard General Store; and Jennifer Hayslett’s vision in the development of the South Royalton Cooperative Market… and more.
