We gather once per month to share inspiration and education on the current month’s specific topic for the Tiny Footprint Challenge!


These are casual, fun and purposeful gatherings.  Our intention is to bring together like-minded people for discussion, inspiration and sharing of tangible steps of actions we can take as individuals and together as a community to create the most healthy planet possible!


“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world.  Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”

– Margaret Mead


We start off the evening with a delicious potluck of tasty organic vegetarian food.  We then host a 45 minute roundtable community discussion focused on the current month’s topic.  Everyone present has the opportunity to share their ideas and express their feelings on the topic.  We will utilize the content generated in our community discussion to create the steps of action for the following month.  For each month/topic we will decide upon 3 levels in which people can participate in the challenge… baby step… standard stride… and giant leap!
