These breakfasts are held the fourth Sunday (new dates in 2011!) of every month. The cost is $5 for all the pancakes you can eat.
Every month we offer a Skillshare Workshop to assist people in gaining skills and connections to foster exchange between neighbors and community members.
Workshops are from 11:00am-12:30pm.
This month's Skillshare Workshop is "Sound Editing" with Kelley Lincoln.
Using Audacity, a free shareware software, you can learn to edit sound you record to create news articles and promos for events and to create fun productions. This is a great skill for educators, entertainers, and activists. The sound auditing skills can be used for video productions as well. We won't focus on the editing of any video, just the sound that goes behind it.
To use Audacity after the workshop, you need to have a computer and the basic ability to use it. Bringing a laptop to the workshop will make learning the skills more "hands-on" and there easier. But the only pre-requisite skill you really need is the ability to cut and paste.
If you bring a laptop, you will definitely walk away with audacity downloaded and the ability to find and use it on your computer. If you bring audio you have already recorded, you can walk away with some early cuts and the skills to finish the piece.
Barter Fair - Exchange Goods & Services
If you have goods or services for which you'd be willing to barter, you will also have the opportunity to offer them to folks at the breakfast.
Items that have been traded at past breakfasts include organic, free-range eggs, hand-made soaps and lotions, fresh-baked bread, herbal tinctures, and whatever you might have to offer!
If you would like to volunteer or carpool with folks to the breakfast please contact Democracy Unlimited in advance - firstname.lastname@example.org or (707) 269-0984.
Please join us for yummy food and a good time!
