The NC Common Ground Collaborative invites you to attend its Regional Meeting in Asheville on June 14 from 10AM-2PM; lunch will be served.

This 2019 regional meeting builds off a May 2017 meeting in which the NC Common Ground Collaborative and partners like you explored intersection of community economic development and conservation to build understanding of each other’s work, develop and strengthen relationships, identify common issues and values, and brainstorm opportunities for future work together. Since that time, with seed grants from the NC Common Ground Collaborative, Blue Ridge Women in Agriculture and Bountiful Cities have been working on collaborative projects that meet these shared goals. The June 2019 NC Common Ground Collaborative Regional Meeting will bring together representatives from the community economic development and conservation sectors to:

Explore the results and lessons learned by seed grantees
Brainstorm next steps for this work and the collaborative’s role in facilitating it
Learn about a new seed grant opportunity available to meeting attendees
Connect with those working in our complementary sectors

Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP by June 12 using the event link.
