If an event you want to attend is full, please keep checking back in case other RSVPs get cancelled or more room opens. You can also come to Machine the night of the event and sign up on a waitlist at the door.

Sara, Christy, and the entire Machine Project staff would like to thank all the volunteer forest builders. Thank you volunteers! This project was funded in part by an ARC grant from the Durfee Foundation. Thank you Durfee Foundation!
