This part of the web site is still being developed and NEGEF is actively fundraising in order to create a system that will allow community volunteers to actively and easily share tools and knowledge with each other.
rootSkills is an annual face-to-face training event that bring together community volunteer leaders for a day of sharing stories, experiences, good food and fun. With three daylong workshop tracks, grassroots activists can hone skills around community building, group development and personal leadership. To learn more, visit the 2012 rootSkills page and stay tuned for more information on the next rootSkills event.

As part of our ongoing mission to foster grassroots growth throughout New England, NEGEF is developing a variety of web tools to better share news, events and resources. In addition, we're putting our grant program online, making it possible for groups to apply for grants and manage those applications on this site.
As a non-profit, we are especially budget conscious. In our desire to create an advanced platform within our limited budget, we have made the tough decision to only support up-to-date browsers.
You can download a Word file with NEGEF's application questions if you would like to apply for a grant.
Thanks for your understanding.
