Financial Permaculture – How to Start Your Own Community Savings Pool
Oct 21 @ 6:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Lenoir-Rhyne University

Join us for the evening for this practical training organized by Co-operate WNC

(a regional mutual aid network), Transition Asheville, and Lenoir Rhyne University.

A community savings pool is a resource-sharing technique whereby a trusted group of 15-25 people

pool their individual savings and then collectively loan money to each other for personal needs and

goals, community projects, business startups and expansions and so on.

Co-operate WNC has identified savings pools as one of the most powerful strategies to

pursue its mission: empowering a regional society of local organizers to grow a mutual aid

network of physical community centers that meet human needs and act as organizing hubs

for climate resilience.

We’ll play a savings pool game, and briefly discuss other cooperative financial tools and mutual aid

practices to improve your community’s life, respond to climate chaos, and grow a regenerative culture

and economy in our region. This discussion will include considerations around the bigger picture of

equity and access in our region and how our community organizing activities can either reinforce or

transform oppressive historical patterns.

You’ll leave with a tangible sense of how to organize and run a savings pool, the benefits

and risks of participation, tools for doing it successfully, and next steps in your own life for

starting or participating in one.

Please consider attending this event with some friends/family/colleagues, as the hope is that you can

go home and start a savings circle with people you trust.

Oscar-winning “Period. End of Sentence.” producer to speak
Oct 27 @ 4:00 pm
Kittredge Theatre, Warren Wilson College

Oscar-winning producer Melissa Berton, creator of the short documentary “Period. End of Sentence.” will speak at Warren Wilson College on Sunday, Oct. 27 at 4 p.m.

“Period. End of Sentence.” follows a group of women in rural India as they learn how to operate a machine that makes low-cost, biodegradable sanitary pads, which they sell to other women at affordable prices. The film won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject this year, and it sparked a worldwide conversation about menstrual justice and menstrual equity.

Berton, who is a graduate of Warren Wilson’s MFA in Creative Writing, works as a high school English teacher at Oakwood School in Los Angeles. After learning that the lack of hygienic sanitary products and taboos around menstruation cause nearly a third of Indian girls to miss school during their periods, her class became inspired to raise money for a pad machine and to create a documentary. They raised funds by doing bake sales and yogathons.

At the lecture at Warren Wilson College, Berton will speak about the importance of girls staying in school and how youth voices can contribute to the global movement for education. She will also give an overview of “how that whole crazy journey took place.”

The lecture will be followed by a showing of the documentary and Q&A session. The event is free and open to the public. It will take place in Warren Wilson College’s Kittredge Theatre. Register online at www.warren-wilson.edu/lecture.
