THE COMMONS is a 2-week event that culminates with our first public DIGGERS DINNER on Thursday, March 6, 2014 @ 6-9pm. Before and after the dinner will be a series of self-sufficiency related demonstrations/performances.

DIGGERS DINNERS are potlucks where each participant’s contribution must be primarily made from ingredients that they have either grown, hunted, fished, foraged, bartered, found, gifted or stolen.

All are invited to take part in the dinner, and attend and/or offer self-sufficiency demonstrations / performances)
