The dates for the 2011 BMCC Spring Caravan are here! We will be leaving on Saturday, April 8th and returning the following Saturday, the 16th. This group will be smaller than our fall caravan, which consisted of more than twenty people from Denver and around the state. Currently, BMCC is looking for more supporters to make our spring caravan strong. Specifically, would like to reach out to self organized individuals with skills in areas of carpentry, building, gardening, permaculture and farming or who are engaged in other or similar struggles for social justice. Interested supporters should be motivated to go to bi-monthly meetings (which will likely become weekly as we approach leaving time), fundraise, outreach, educate themselves about the history of resistance and repression at Big Mountain and organize supplies.
The snow will be melting away when May rolls around and it will be time to start planting corn and other vegetables for the growing season. Other likely work projects include wood chopping, sheepherding and working on sustainable building projects that residents have requested. More projects are likely to emerge as we get closer to the date. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested!
