Doing Good All Over Greensboro

Wednesday, June 08, 2016

At HERObike in Greensboro, Alabama, the shop where bicycles are made from bamboo frames -- the bamboo coming from a few blocks from the workshop.

Their new model, the Semester, is $799 in commuter model. It was a Kickstarter campaign that surpassed its $40k goal, and those models started shipping in 2014.

Project Horseshoe -- this is the Community Clubhouse
Project Horseshoe, Greensboro AL

From their website:
The Clubhouse provides a safe and welcoming place with programs and activities for elderly, isolated, or mentally disabled members of our community or for anyone who just wants to come and have a good time. Clubhouse members, including women living in the Horseshoe Farm enhanced independent living housing program enjoy day programs, lunches, games, volunteer work opportunities, and sometimes just stopping by to visit. Project Horseshoe Farm also provides outreach support to isolated or vulnerable community members who could benefit from home visits, transportation, a delivered home cooked meal, or other support as needed.

And before heading home: pie at Pie Lab. Meant to bring people together (how can anyone be disagreeable over a piece of pie anyway?), Pie Lab is now a fixture downtown
