December’s general meeting will focus on some new ideas on how to stimulate our local economy. Joining us will be:
Dan Dorsey- from Sonoran Permaculture Guild. Co-founder of Tucson Traders. Did you know Tucson used to have its own local currency? Maybe its time to resurrect a modern version of this concept. Dan will give us some history and thoughts for the future of local currencies.

Ryan Anderson- from habitatmap.org. We’ll see how utilizing community mapping tools can strengthen our economic initiatives.

Frank Ballesteros- Chief Administration Officer- from PPEP Microbusiness and Housing Development Corporation. Micro-financing and small business loans can stimulate new businesses.

All meetings include time for discussion and a questions and answers period. Please join us an exciting evening of exploring new ideas to help our community.

Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

Sustainably, The ST Core team
