Buy Nothing Somerville “sprout” planning

The Buy Nothing Somerville community is nearly four times larger than when I started as co-moderator, about 13 months ago. It’s reached an unsustainable point so we’ve begun discussions on how to “sprout” the community into smaller and more sustainable groups. It’s going to take a lot of work. Today, my co-moderator and I worked out a few details and next steps for a sprout plan. But some unexpected considerations landed on our desk from the neighboring Buy Nothing Cambridge leaders so we’re considering our options, hopefully with some support from the regional administrators.
