Free Community Resources

Enough Pie’s mission is to use creativity to connect and empower our community. Empowerment comes through sharing information. By expanding Enough Pie’s Free Community Resources page, we hope to empower the community of the Upper Peninsula (and beyond) with tools for organizing and creating in public spaces more safely and transparently.

The resources being added are meant to strengthen bonds and collaborations by offering free templates for agreements, project ideas, and step-by-step instructions to ensure happier, healthier community connections. Knowledge is Power.
