It might be winter (though that seems up for question sometimes), but that doesn’t mean that the shop shuts down!
With normal shop and volunteer hours slowing down, there is energy left over to plan and get ready for the next season. If you want to get involved in making decisions on how the co-op is run, now’s a great time.
At the Village Green Board meeting on Sunday the 12th at 6PM we’ll be discussing the possibilities for an edible forest on the Boyd Street lot, ideas for summer Kids’ day, and developing more workshops for the end of winter.
Speaking of workshops, the following Saturday, the 18th, we’ll be putting all those used flower pots you brought in at a Seed Starting Workshop hosted by board members and expert gardeners Sharon and Julz. Check the Village Green Facebook page for details.
This Monday, the 6th at 7 PM, will be the first meeting of the year for the Mechanics/Shop Committee. This committee is largely responsible for keeping Open Shop running, and for training new mechanics to spread the good word of bike repair. Agenda items include an overhaul of the used parts storage, our spring bike sale, and a winter workshop and certification series.
