Our virtual GNDC planning meeting was this Sunday, 6 pm, and it started off great, when all of a sudden unknown numbers of people started joining us and we had to close the meeting. I tried to send out a ñew message to everyone, but didn’t have enough system resources to do so. Three of us got together, though, and soldiered on.
We are still looking for old and new folks to join us. Help us plan out some more speakers/topics for August (July is covered, more info to come.) And help us update, revamp our website to become a broad and deep source of environmental information for DC. Tell us what you would like to work on.
Email us if interested in the next meeting – no more putting passwords on the web. Greenneighborsdc@gmail.com.
Join us! We can use a couple more hands. Thanks!
