It’s been a dynamic past few days in the Buy Nothing community. Buy Nothing communities typically “sprout” into multiple groups after reaching about 1,000 members, to keep communities more tightly knit. But it’s a difficult process; members are usually not happy about shrinking their groups. The process imploded for Buy Nothing Jamaica Plain, as Patch wrote about. After all, drawing boundaries within communities is fraught with social justice issues. In the aftermath of Buy Nothing Jamaica Plain, I wrote a post for Buy Nothing Somerville asking for input on a potential-pending sprout in our community. Today, I spent a lot of time reading responses and responding to a few of them to get a better sense for how to direct Buy Nothing Somerville forward.
