Delighted you enjoyed Don's article in the Enterprise. That's good news. You can also join Transition Westminster / Arvada / Broomfield, which you can find in the "Groups" menu item above. We're looking for more avenues to farm, reach out to youth, and market ourselves, so your experience sounds terrific! (would love to hear more about what your kids think about world events and the part they want to play) You'll see lots of local events, including a showing of "Escape from Suburbia" tonight at the Grange in old Broomfield. Hope to see you 'round!
