Door County Thrive Needs Your Input

The newly organized Door County Thrive group wants to make Door County one of the next pioneering communities to pave the way in the areas of renewable and sustainable living. There is a desire in our community to organize, speak up about climate change, seek out alternative power sources, produce and buy local food, use local resources, recycle and compost. Door County Thrive is a community of caring citizens uniting to make Door County a model of sustainability for future generations.

The second meeting for this group is set for Feb. 2 at 7 pm at the Door County Makers Space, 24/26 N. Third Ave., Sturgeon Bay. The aim of this meeting is to envision a model program for this urgent and life-sustaining topic. Bring suggestions on how you would like to see Door County’s green practices develop. Together, through the brainstorming process, the group will be able to foster existing eco-organizations and create new ones. As more ideas are gathered, they’ll see if there’s an interest in an action-oriented group of new leaders to initiate projects. For more information, call Kate (708.712.9580) or Angela (920.868.5088).
