Renters all across Bloomington know they are being exploited by their landlord. What is not so clear are the ways to fight back against this exploitation. At this workshop, tenants will come together to discuss the various ways they are suffering abuses by their landlords and will learn more about their existing rights as tenants, how to defend themselves, and how to fight back.

Split Wood for Maple Syrup, an MLK Day Volunteer Opportunity

01:00 pm to 03:00 pm
Hinkle-Garton Farmstead

Join us at the farmstead on MLK Day for an outdoor volunteer activity to help prepare for maple syrup season. Volunteers will be splitting wood, both by hand tools and using a log splitter, that will be used to boil the sap later. Those not actively splitting wood can help with stacking the logs and possibly other tasks related to syrup season prep.
