You probably did, but maybe you didn’t know this…
1 – There are rooms available in Stone Soup! You can start your art project, your grassroots group, your micro-enterprise or co-op business, you-name-it for really cheap, and have access to the computers, meeting rooms, kitchen and extended stone soup community. We’re talking $200-300/month all included. Or be a caretaker (we’re looking for caretakers starting in November). Get in touch if you’re interested and we’ll show you the space. General Stone Soup number: 508-755-4974.
2 – We’re open most week days during the day and often in the evening, but we’d like to be open more… we need YOU to volunteer with us for open hours. Contact Paula to find out more: harrisop -at- gmail.com
3 – There are hundreds of rad books on topics from Latin American social movements to gay liberation, from anarchism to cultural studies in the Firecracker Lending Library – but the library collective needs your help sorting, cataloging and tracking the books to make this resource functional and available! Contact Lauren to help out: tankgrrrl12 -at- hotmail.com
4 – There’s a very welcoming community bike shop and a place to earn a free bike. Worcester Earn-A-Bike operates out of the Stone Soup basement and is open Weds. 4:30-6:30, Sat. 2-4:30, and Sun 7-9 (Sun. is age 17+). Bike donations welcome, as well!
