Self-Reliance Workshop Series

Self Reliance Workshop Series NH

A Collaboration Of Jack Mountain And GALA

2016 is our fourth year of partnering with GALA (Global Awareness, Local Action), a non-profit based in the NH lakes region. We’ll be offering a monthly series of workshops that short, inexpensive, and geared toward learning useful skills to make ourselves and our communities more self reliant and resilient. Registration is through GALA.

Workshops run on the first Wednesday of the month from 5:30-8:00. Cost is $15 for GALA Members, although there are added material fees for certain workshops. We make our go/no-go decision based on enrollment on the Saturday before the workshop, so be sure to register early! If you’re not a GALA member, you can join for $15.

Please call 603-539-6460 or email contact@galacommunity.org to register or for more information.
