Building Community- a bit differently

Today the blog goes out to the world!  A fascinating new tool to reach out and spread the word about what Greenwood Tree does...and hopes to do.

We hope to have two new board members soon.  Maybe it's you or someone you know?!  Our board meets monthly- usually during a weekday morning- a great group of mamas and babes.  The only board meeting I have ever been to where there's typically at least one child nursing, and now and then something unexpected happens like a disheveled girl runs into the house and announces "The dog is eating one of the chickens!"  And yet, this board has accomplished amazing things.

In a few months we have gone from being an idea around a farmhouse kitchen table to having inspiring weekly programs, festive seasonal celebrations and establishing a solid community of families.

In the coming months we will work on becoming a tax-exempt nonprofit organization, fundraising and expanding our programs to help serve the needs of the families in our cooperative.  We hope that you'll be part of our growth!
