March being Women's History month, it seems like the right time to talk about some wonderful women-centric events and groups here on Cape Cod: The SheArt Network, Cape Women Online, and Geek Girls Camp '11.
The SheArt Network is a nonprofit here on the Cape that, as stated on their web site, provides "a supportive, creative environment where women share ideas, learn new artistic techniques, create and sell SheArt products and help women in transition."
Based in Harwich, the SheArt Network has monthly meetings the first Monday of every month at the Harwich Community Center, offers workshops, and holds Art and Fine Craft Sales several times a year with products made by their members. Their next sale is the Fourth Annual Mother's Day Art and Fine Craft Sale, April 30 - May 1 at the West Dennis Graded School House. Read more about this groups inspiring work here.
Cape Women Online (CWO) is an online newsletter featuring some amazing stories about exciting women-owned businesses, women artists, writers and organizations that call Cape Cod their home. As a woman-owned business ourselves, its great to find a newsletter featuring some of the amazing women who are blazing new trails in business. In their Winter 2011 edition, they have a wonderful article about UnUtility Electric who develop and own photovoltaic arrays that are placed on top of businesses through out Cape Cod. According to the article "The solar arrays owned by Unutility Electric produce green electricity, which is sold at a discount to the businesses at the sites."
