HAMILTON, Mont. — A group in Ravalli County wants to draw on the valley's positive amenities to come up with ways they can work together to improve the valley.
Hamilton farmer Laura Garber is spearheading the Bitterroot Open Space Community Roundtable on Saturday. Garber said anybody who has an idea to make the valley better is invited to the free conference.
Although we all may have differences of opinion, she said, we all have some things in common.
As a farmer she sees "food, society and culture" as positive essentials that we all share. She said the Bitterroot is full of good things that can be built upon.
"Instead of thinking of ways that we don't like each other," said Garber, "this is a way to find ways we can connect with each other and build our community, our society, our food and our culture based on common understanding."
The Open Space Roundtable will be held from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday at the Center for Spiritual Living, across from Hamilton High School at 328 Fairgrounds Road in Hamilton.
There is no cost to attend. Organizers said please RSVP for meal count by one of three ways:
