Participation confusion

Hello friends,

We are constantly thrilled to be getting such great feedback about the RRFM coming up, however, maybe the structure of the (dis)organization has made things a little confusing as to how the RRFM functions.

We were recently informed that a couple people have dropped off items (a large batch of clothing?) at The Earth House last week. As awesome as we think it is that people want to contribute to the RRFM, we also need to clarify that although the RRFM is being held AT the Earth House, it isn't fundamentally an activity OF the Earth House Collective, therefore we would request that you do not use the Earth House as a drop off point for any items as we have not established any area for storage of such items.

We certainly don't want to discourage anyone from getting involved, so if you absolutely can't make it to this first one (or any following RRFM's) and want to arrange for someone else to bring your items to the market, please send us an email and we will make arrangements for you.

Furthermore, although a RRFM has the potential to ease the burden of acquiring physical necessities by offering "stuff" up for free, another one of its more rewarding components is the act of communing. We hope that at a RRFM, instead of just getting rid of "stuff", that you would also like to meet others, experience what it is to give and take freely without obligation, and possibly consider how groups and individuals can extend this type of gift economy and social liberation to all aspects of our lives.

Until we figure all that out, we respectfully request that you do not leave items at the Earth House and instead email us for pick up arrangments if possible.

Thank you and see you on the 20th.
