Our monthly Transition/Co-Housing potluck usually includes a gift circle.
What is a gift circle? Here is a site that describes the idea and the practice in as much depth as you want:
So here’s how it goes: Make a dish that you like (enough for three people) and bring it at 7:00 pm. After we’ve eaten, at about 7:45 pm, we make a circle and establish what gifts and needs are present in the circle this month, then match them.
What ensues? Stronger community bonds, needs met, gifts accepted, hearts opened, lives bettered. Please come and join us. Everyone is welcome, and from those who can afford it, a $5 donation helps us pay for use of the hall and kitchen. We end at 9:00 pm or thereabouts.
So come to the lovely St Albans Parish Hall, on Washington Street at Curtis on the Albany-Berkeley border, every first Tuesday of the month. In the summer we start at 7 pm. In the winter months (November – March) we start earlier at 6:30 pm
Upcoming dates: Tuesday May 6,
Tuesday June 3, PLEASE STAY TUNED FOR THE FUTURE OF THESE POTLUCKS – WHICH IS IN DOUBT. If you would like to be one of the people to ensure they happen every month, please contact Catherine at 510-528-2261l. Thanks. (Tuesday July 1, Tuesday August 5, Tuesday September 2, Tuesday October 7, Tuesday November 4 (6:30 pm start) and Tuesday December 2 (6:30 pm start))
