Hi Jane,
Great!
It depends on the size of the group. I just headed of a Centretown group, and since I hadn't found a free location and I didn't want to charge, I had it in my home. Homes actually work really nicely, especially for tea and snacks. In my case, I have a size limitation, but some homes are quite big. Otherwise community centres don't charge too much, and some churches I hear have free spaces, though I haven't found one yet. And of course there are always Bridgeheads and pubs, though the background noise can sometimes make deep conversation more challenging.
I've been meaning to go through all the members and figure where they live. We have admin files, but they don't show up the locations. If interested, you can scroll through and 'get to know' (digitally) the members, and pick up the ones who live in your area. You can contact them through the site. All you need is a time and place and you're on your way to SLOHill - or whatever you'd like to call your group. The other groups around the city all start with Sustainable Living Ottawa SLO______).
The steering group offers support to local groups starting out. Let us know what you need. For example, I have lots of material - PPt slides, movie, Rob's TED talk, so if any of this is useful to help initiate your area, we're here to help.
A send a warm smile :)
Cheers,
Kaia

Welcome Jane!
I'm excited to see your interest in facilitating conversation.
I'm currently looking around the city for spaces we can meet, preferably without a cover charge, especially in the down town area. It would be great to have your facilitation.
There are several members living in Sandy Hill. Perhaps a local group can be started.
