Workshops are done in groups you design – who do you want at the workshop? What topics do you want to cover? How can Deb be of the most assistance to you and your group(s)? Generally workshops range in length from one hour to half a day. Do you want to do two one hour workshops in one morning with two different groups? That can be arranged.

Webinars vary in topics, and we often recommend you just work with Becky McCray and I both at www.saveyour.town. This cost varies, and they can work through it with you.

Embedded Community Experiences (ECE) are Monday to Thursday and each town is different!




Once or twice a year I take on a community and project at a reduced cost. Are you doing something ridiculously cool and I want to be involved? Small towns are my passion, and I want to help. Don’t hesitate to ask for what you want, and let’s talk! … Deb

Are you looking for funding to bring us to your community?  You can try these resources:






You’ll have to dig to find any local-only sources, like community foundations, local economic development funds, tax set-asides designated for community or economic development or your local utility companies. Electric companies especially may have some economic development funds or know where to find some. 

We will continue to add more resources as we are introduced to them!
