This is a special invitation from Mindshare's inaugural Showcase series!
Sabrina Williams was one of the inaugural Mindshare Showcase runner ups. She gave such a superb talk that many people asked how they could help her with her mission. So we decided to put together a little FREE workshop with her!
ACTIVITIES: We'll be up to 2 things:
SCHEDULE: The day is open anyone who'd like to help goes from 10:30am-3:30pm and fresh goodies will be served. Feel bring something brunchy if you'd like to add it to the mix.
LOCATION: The "Ghettostead" is a homestead, where the cowork/business incubator will be hosted along with food growing, food preparation and chicken raising. We are negotiating to acquire 67,000 square feet of land that has been presented just south of the Ghettostead!
