Community Events & Enrichment
G.A.L.A. believes that offering enriching community events and programs are an integral part of our role in building strong, sustainable communities. These events and programs provide opportunities for people to connect and network, to share activities and hobbies, support local agriculture, and join hands in keeping their communities beautiful and vibrant. Information on these events and programs is posted on the G.A.L.A. Calendar of Events and Blog Archives (to your right), and also listed on Facebook as they are scheduled. We are ALWAYS in need of volunteers to help us with the events and programs… so if you’d like to be part of the team that’s bringing sustainable change into communities and people’s lives, give us a “holla” at the office on 603-539-6460.
