Fireside Chat: Waldo County Bounty
June 14 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm EDTFree
Our Fireside Chat this month will be hosted by Waldo County Bounty, a hunger relief organization working to improve access to locally-grown foods for people experiencing food insecurity in Waldo County, Maine
Waterfall Arts presents Fireside Chats, an enthusiastic experiment meant to ignite conversations, boost empathy, and offer a platform for shared stories to help all of us set new intentions for our collective future. The event will take place monthly on our front lawn for anyone to gather around warm fire pits for a night of storytelling.
Why a storytelling series? Stories have the potential to break down barriers, sharpen our radical listening skills, empower community, and make us feel part of something larger than ourselves.
Who is participating? These monthly chats will include a visit from another local non-profit organization to share about their experience serving our community, and to provide us with a theme for the evening. Community partnerships provide us with a platform for collaboration and an interdependence that is necessary as Waldo County–and the rest of the state–continue to deal with the repercussions of the pandemic.
What should I do if I want to come? For those interested in joining the conversation, consider themes for sharing a story around your experience food, farming, or gardening!
