Welcome! Green Acres Village is a growing node within Green Acres Neighborhood. Our weekly dinners resume September 14, every Thursday until June 2018. 6:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. All neighbors and friends invited. You are welcome to visit anytime. Just call or email ahead.

The dinners are not potlucks, but giftings. However, you are welcome to bring food, drink or a donation, if that works for you. In any case, not necessary! Or maybe your guitar or banjo? In any case, come.

On Monday, we preserved food; on Tuesday, we worked on the grounds; on Thursday, Community Dinner . . .

I’m trying to keep up with it all, all the goings on in the GAV, but I must admit, the pics for last night’s scrumptuous weekly Community Dinner are still on my phone. Will retrieve them and post on that event tomorrow. Meanwhile, here’s what I put up yesterday on the exopermaculture blog, and applies equally well, here. The point is, folks, we must Practice what we Preach, i.e., Walk our Talk, i.e., rather than sit around complaining how awful the world is, instead, make it better! Pick your own spot, and dig in! What we create in the future will result from what we all do NOW. The Green Acres Village is one tiny experimental example of what the world could be, a place where caring and sharing is not just automatic, but gracious and spacious and fun. Above all, FUN.
