Venue: Contact Carrie Sonnenborn for the address, [email protected]
Bring: Dish to share, friends/ neighbors/ family, plants/seeds/seedlings to swap, ideas and enthusiasm, excess veggies welcome!
Aug Resilience Circle – The August Resilience Circle was attended by about 25 people at the home of Kelli Marko. We enjoyed great food, garden abundance was shared and everyone got to check in on their current sustainability passion.  The rain kept us under cover on the porch but everyone admired the ‘whomping willow’ in Kelli’s yard as well as the abundant veggie and flower garden. Thanks for hosting and attending!
Eiber Neighborhood Association  is  looking for new Board Members! The Resilience Circle is a project of the ENA so this is really helping out our ‘parent organization’ and will give you a broader overview of what’s happening in the Eiber neighborhood.  The Board meets about every 2 months. Contact ENA President Paul Ditson, [email protected]   if you have questions and / or  are interested. 
Peace Day on the Mall – Sept 6
Jovial Concepts has once again organized an amazing event on the 16th Street Mall to celebrate World Peace Day in Denver. Be there or be square! 
SHIFT Festival – Now this looks fascinating….”The SHIFT Festival features North America’s leading foodies, adventure athletes and sustainability pioneers in a dynamic debate about the innovative ideas that will preserve our future”
Held in Jackson Hole, Wyoming nestled in the  Grand Tetons, Oct 8 – 12. Wow,  who wants to go?
Bee Safe Eiber – We have made a great effort to distribute Bee Safe information to every household in  Eiber this summer – but we still aren’t there! This will be an ongoing initiative that we will take forward into the coming year and the Spring of 2015. We’d really like to know WHO has committed to not using systemic pesticides  in their yards and will be circulating a survey in future to gauge how effective we’ve been.
