The Earthhouse Board needs to fill the C.S.O. position

Earthhouse needs your help. Due to a recent resignation, we are without a C.S.O. (Community Service Officer). If you would like the chance to give back to Earthhouse and to help build community, this is an excellent opportunity for you to become more involved in the Earthhouse organization. As C.S.O. you will have many opportunities for community outreach and networking with various Pagan groups throughout the Twin-Cities, Minnesota and even beyond.

If you are interested in filling the vacancy of our 5th elected officer, please email earthhousemn@gmail.com and tell us about your interest.

Come join us and help Earthhouse grow!
