Welcome to the Freetown Farm Maker Space!
mak·er·space: noun - a place in which people with shared interests can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment and knowledge. The mission of CEI's Maker Space at Freetown Farm is to support personal and community resilience by creating a space for people to learn about lost arts and skills that were commonly known several generations ago. It connects with the overall mission of CEI at Freetown Farm by providing experiential education opportunities that foster health, sustainability, and resilience.
On Friday, November 13th at 7pm please join us in kicking off a week-long silent auction to raise funds for the Maker Space renovation with an evening of games, exclusive auction items, prizes, and wonderful people. The virtual auction will remain open until November 22 and is a great opportunity to start holiday shopping while supporting artists and your community. The link for the auction is https://event.gives/makerspace and click here for the link for the virtual launch party.
Beyond the auction, here are all the areas where we could use the community's support to develop the maker space:
•Financial support - www.flipcause.com/secure/cause_pdetails/OTEwNTE=
•Building materials or donated professional services
•Tools, books, DVDs, and similar materials for the library
•Volunteers to help with the restoration of the space
•Volunteers to help manage the space
•Volunteers to teach or mentor
•Ideas for projects, classes, et cetera
•And, last but not least, people who want to come in and have fun!
If you would like to volunteer to help with the Maker Space cleanup, you can do that here. If you or anyone you know would like to help with other aspects of setting up the Maker Space, please contact Veronica at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We gave a virtual tour and kick-off of the Maker Space on August 23rd. Here is a link to the presentation that we gave at that time: https://us02web.zoom.us/rec/share/tJUtIaHL0zNLSbP0z1zcR6UEWajleaa80SlPrKZcxEmEhrkA0n7zwLVwX1qa78-_ Passcode: 9@UU8.j*
