We want you to walk away with some real skills about how to connect with your neighbors in realistic and meaningful ways that begin to unfold your individual stories of who you are, who you are in your community and who you all are in our coming together... so that whatever projects you are working on or are inspired to do we’ll help you help neighbors come together to really dive into the Placemaking Application process The Series: Our Fall Gatherings are designed to Build Skills in the Community.
