From One Gift Come Many
Groundswell Network Society advances community sustainability and resilience through applied, innovative projects that result in social, economic and environmental benefits. The focus of our work has strong connections to what we refer to as the ‘Big Five’ – Food, Energy, Water, Waste and Climate. The products we market in this work are skill acquisition and capacity building, confidence and hope; we empower individuals and communities to recognize they determine and achieve their sustainability goals and create healthier communities in the process
2014 was our most active year of programming at Groundswell. From local food production, renewable energy workshops, permaculture garden development, rocket mass heaters, built wetlands, community composting, garden bed rentals, car-share research, youth employment, seniors programs, to visiting film makers – we were hopping!
Every year over 5,000 people engage in Groundswell’s programs and events through direct visits, workshops, memberships, volunteers, growing food and online resources. Without support of people like you this level of activity would not be possible.
