The Canopy Café is informal way for people to stop in, learn a bit more about the work we do at The Civic Canopy, and to meet other folks who are interested in collaboration, civic engagement, and various other ways of describing efforts to make the world a better place. We hold them monthly, typically begin at 3:30 with some snacks, introductions around the table, and then a brief overview of what The Civic Canopy is, how we came to be, and an update on some projects we are working on these days. Then we just open it up for discussion. Whether 1 person shows up or 10, the conversation always seems to be just the right thing for the moment, and even if folks initially stopped in with the goal of learning more about the Canopy, they usually leave with a number of other connections. Stop on by if you can, and share with others who might enjoy meeting folks doing interesting things around the community.
We will use this network workspace as a way for people to stay connected after the Cafe, and to share information and tools and materials about their individual efforts, or about things that might be of interest to the larger group.
