Transition North Suburbs Meeting – Feb 8

We will be meeting Wednesday evening February 8th, from around 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the new Blaine Cub Foods located at 10881 University Avenue NE, which is at the South-east corner of the intersection of University Avenue and 109th Avenue in Blaine and Northdale Blvd in Coon Rapids. I believe they have a conference room located up the stairs located to the left of the checkout registers as you enter the store.

If time allows we will have a two part meeting.

Wendy will start us off which some more applications on the practice of herbalism. This will be a follow-up to Wendy’s yard tour last summer (see attached “Home Tour” handout. We discussed learning more about herbalism as a theme for this year at our last meeting. And on that topic the classes being offered by the Women’s Environmental Institute might be of interest.

Part two will be I believe a hands on opportunity for folks to practice the art of convivial tool making, which Bob will lead. Bob will show us a project he is working on designed to help folks understand the “hafting” process where stone projectile point is hafted to a shaft to make a useful tool. Attached is a photo showing the the materials used in the process. I am hoping to get/make one of these to use for rooting around in my garden this year.
