Co-creators Alixa Garcia and Naima Penniman have independently organized more than 30 national and international tours, taking their work from South Africa to Cuba, the UK to Mexico, Scotland to India, and throughout the U.S. including 11,000 miles toured on a bus converted to run on recycled vegetable oil.

Produced in Collaboration with: SURJ Upper Valley, HCOREI & CROH

Sponsored by: Execusuite LLC, the SustainableFutures Fund, the Mascoma Savings Bank Foundation and others.
