The Adirondack Green Circle - Saranac Lake

The Adirondack Green Circle
was started in 2007 by Gail Brill after reading Barbara Kingsolver's book, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle. We meet at 10am the first Sunday of each month in the home of one of our members. At our monthly meeting we discuss ways to affect change in our own lives and in our community.

Our Mission Statement:
To create a forum that will educate and inspire both ourselves and our community to choose sustainable living practices. Sustainability means meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. By promoting these practices in our lives and in the community, we move towards living in harmony with our earth and each other.

Green Circle Goals:
*To choose and maintain an optimistic outlook about the future of our planet and the ability to affect positive change through sustainable practices
*Read, meet and discuss relevant articles and research
*Attend relevant workshops and meetings
*Provide outreach and education via our website and community events
*Work with local politicians and agencies to create a more sustainable and environmentally conscious government and community

Rachel Bullard is going to be teaching the art classes for the village summer youth program at the middle school this summer. Most of her projects are going to be using recycled objects to create art. We were wondering if you could get the word out to help us collect a few things, such as: egg cartons (cardboard or foam), paper towel holders, orange juice cartons for bird houses, any scrap yarns and buttons. If your next meeting is the first Sunday of each month, is that July 3? Rachel could come over and pick up anything collected. The program services students ages 7 - 13 and runs for 5 weeks. We appreciate the help and all of your efforts.
Thanks, Kathleen Bullard
