Make New Friends and Save the Earth
We, as so many of you who come here, are concerned about our dependence on fossil fuels and the impact it has on the environment. At the same time we also know that now more than ever we need each other. We need to find places to connect with like-minded people, whether to come together to look for ways to find solutions to our current crisis, to express our creativity, or to come to rest, relax, and rejuvenate, as a way of nourishing our soul.
Carpooling is a great way to share resources, save money, and, possibly meet a new friend. If you’re interested, please let us know and we’ll do our best to help you connect with people in your area.
