Germinate local genius with ABQ Sprout
Have you heard about this grassroots effort to improve the city?
The model works like this:
• Folks pay to get into a dinner cooked by a local chef.
• During the dinner, people make pitches on how to make Albuquerque a better place.
• The diners vote, and the money they paid to attend the event becomes an instant micro-grant for the winner.
In Albuquerque it’s called ABQ Sprout, though it’s based on a model that goes by various names in other cities. The first-ever dinner is Saturday, Jan. 28, at the South Valley Multipurpose Center (2008 Larrazolo SW). Admission is $15 to $30 on a sliding scale.
A Spit Shine on the City
Two projects promise to better Burque: ABQ Sprout, a micro-grant dinner that funds good ideas and CNM’s free green-collar jobs training.
