About the Directory

This directory of local resources is based on the lists of local businesses and resources that we've compiled at theHumm over the years as we've worked on our annual guides (eg classes/courses, volunteering, gift giving) and our event calendar. It's a natural extension of our work in scanning the region for great resources, and it's a work in progress.
