Boulder Earth Week Potlucks:

This year, we are inviting Boulder community members to host a potlucks between April 17th and the 29th.

Why Potlucks?

Potlucks not only bring people together to "break bread," they create a food community without any sort of hierarchy or division of roles. At a potluck everyone is the cook, host and guest. Everyone does dishes and everyone gets fed. And when we join our offerings together, there is an abundance of diversity and deliciousness.

And that's exactly the sort of culture we're hoping to create with Boulder Earth Week. When we bring together a resilient community of thinkers, creators and doers, we can combine our efforts and our minds, to create lasting solutions here and beyond.
