Wild Ideas

Wild Ideas is a casual discussion evening where our community comes together to share some wild ideas over food and drink. We come together to talk about environmental issues, social justice, or local initiatives – it’s informal, inclusive and stimulating. Previous topics have included Slow Food, Meaningful Work, Climate Change, Permaculture, and Tiny Homes.

Join us every 3rd Thursday of the month, 5:30-7:30pm at Circle Cafe in Invermere. See the Events page for upcoming topics and speakers.

 

Wild Ideas Invermere is always free!
Food and drinks available for purchase

She gave tips on creating a simpler and more financially free way of living, but also covered some of the challenges of having these type of abodes gain wider acceptance through proper zoning and adherence to provincial and national building codes.
