Mayday! All hands on deck! Workshop

Hunger Mountain Co-op
Phone:802-223-8000
Address: 623 Stone Cutters Way

Montpelier, Vermont may be the smallest state capital in the country, but it arguably has one of the largest per-capita cultures of innovative thinkers and sound environmental policies in the U.S. However, to become the beacon of climate resilience and sustainability, we need a major boost. And that’s where Mayday, the call for help comes in. We need all hands on deck!

The time is ripe to set a standard on the most local level, for livable, walkable cities, prepared to weather the storms of a warming planet.  We need a local Green New Deal energizing every neighborhood in Montpelier. Acting now, we could prepare for one of the worst threats of climate change, facing our small city - the increases  in precipitation and severities of storm events. Perhaps a Civilian Corps of Montpelier Neighbors could build a green infrastructure to mitigate floods and keep polluted water from reaching our rivers?

What would a Green New Deal look like for Montpelier? Come explore that idea with Moderator Elizabeth Courtney, Dan Jones, the Sustainable Montpelier Coalition staff, John Snell, Sarah Hoffmeier and members of the Montpelier Tree Board

Space is limited and registration in advance is suggested. To attend this free workshop, sign up on the bulletin board in our exit way, call us at 802-262-3202 or use this online form.

All workshops are held in the Hunger Mountain Co-op community room unless otherwise noted, with access to a freight elevator upon request.

    with Erika S. Bruner, DVM, CVA

    Whether managing the challenges of old age, or facing a terminal diagnosis, the end of our pets’ lives can be a difficult time for many of us. We want only the best for them; but what does that mean? How do we decide among our options for diagnosis and medical care? How can we best help them to be comfortable? Since we can’t talk to them, how do we assess their quality of life? And if we reach the point of choosing to end their lives, how and when should we make that decision?

    Dr Erika Bruner, a local veterinarian since 2002, now focuses her practice only on veterinary acupuncture and end-of-life care.  She has worked with many clients to help them find their ways through these and other questions. Come to this workshop to share stories, explore your thoughts, ask questions, and hear practical information on caring for pets at this stage of life that can be the most difficult, but also is often the most beautiful and meaningful.
