We will be giving our first ever presentation at Green Mountain College next week! The event will be focused on spreading information and awareness, sharing our mission and goals as a company, and meeting with members of the community and allies in a safe environment. With an emphasis on the experiences trans and nonbinary individuals go through thanks to transphobia and ways to effect change.
Dates and Times: Saturday April 30th from 3-6pm @ East Room Sunday May 1st from 1-4pm @ The Gorge Both locations in Withey Hall
College Address: Green Mountain College 1 Brennan Cir Poultney, VT 05764
It’s a free event, snacks and drinks will be provided, and we would love to see you there!
Even if you can’t make it, we’ll be posting some of our materials used here after the presentation so nobody misses out! If you’re interested in having Ways2Raise do a presentation near you, contact us at email@example.com.
This prototype for a new kind of self-sufficient mobile home was designed with reclaimed materials by an innovative group of sixteen students, members of a Renewable Energy and Ecological Design (REED) course at Green Mountain College in Vermont.
REED students in Prof. Lucas Brown’s design/build class unveil their semester project, OTIS, to the community.
“Good workmanship—that is, careful, considerate, and loving work—requires us to think considerately of the whole process, natural and cultural, involved in the making of wooden artifacts […]. The good worker loves the board before it becomes a table, loves the tree before it yields the board, loves the forest before it gives up the tree.” -Wendell Berry “Preserving Wildness”

"There is also a unofficial streaking team, people are allowed to be barefoot pretty much everywhere, and there are chickens running free around campus, and cats who occasionally sneak into the classrooms, dorms, and student center."
