Sustainable Atwood would like to thank all the participants in our DNR EAB Readiness and Full Cycle Response grant meeting at Edgewood College on Saturday afternoon March 18, 2012. Their knowledge, experience, passion, and dedication are an invaluable resource that will help make this project a reality. We would also like to thank our hosts, the Edgewood College Sustainability Leadership class and their Faculty, Jim Lorman and Kathryne Auerback. Everyones participation and input was greatly appreciated.
The meeting brought together a diverse group of interested parties, from city officials to local artists and important connections were made between many individuals, groups, and their ideas. This wide range of individuals is indicative of the scope of interest and possibilities of this project. Through the innovative processes of The World CafÃ© and The Fish Bowl facilitated by the Edgewood Sustainability Leadership program, we were able to converse with one another about the possibilities, necessities, and the challenges that this project brings and record those collaborative insights. Now we want your input. We are planning a public meeting to find out what it is our community members hope will become of their wood. Save the date for March 29, 2012, 7:-8:30 p.m. at Trinity Lutheran Church, corner of Winnebago and First Street, Atwood neighborhood 53704.
