When: Sunday, March 5, 2pm-5pm
Where: Arts at the Armory, 191 Highland Avenue, Somerville, MA 02143
Adults, teens, tweens, toddlers, and in between will have ways to express their thoughts. We will have interactive ways for attendees to learn about the challenges different residents face in Somerville, as well as to gain ideas on help to the environment.
Come, meet a friend, and share a thought about our city's future. There will be pizza for kids and drinks for adults.

Somerville's Data Farm (www.somervillema.gov/datafarm) is home to "locally sourced and handpicked food for thought," which includes three portals of data visualizations as well as a fourth portal with the "data seeds" (the raw data) used to "grow" the other portals: [portals over there]
