The Weekly BUZZ: History at The Mill!

We appreciate what came before us here at the Mill at Lafayette and feeling a real sense of place is important to us.  We try to promote that within our community here and are proud to host our local historian, Tim Cranston, with annual historical walking tours.  Mark your calendars for our next one, on Saturday, June 1st.  We meet at The Hive for complimentary coffee and pastries at 9:30 then we’re off… This next walk is sponsored by our friends, the Concerned Citizens of Davisville and the Davisville Free Library.  For more information, check out Tim’s Swamptown Enterprises page here

Office Space:
We haven’t had any available office space in a few months but as some larger spaces are being built out and some community members (tenants) are ‘moving up’ — we have a couple spaces opening up in the next couple of months.  Act fast, as they’ll go fast…and there are only 2!

What’s Good:
We are still getting new people signing up and having their locally sourced food (and products) delivered on Fridays…we continue to be excited about The Hive RI’s partnership with WhatsGood, a Providence based company that brings the farmers market right to your door!

The Hive RI is a FREE pickup point on Fridays from 3-5 for our community…

Here’s how it works: 

1.       Download the WhatsGood Marketplace app (Google Play or Apple Store)
2.       Choose “The Hive RI” and the date you for your order
3.       Shop from over 25 Rhode Island farms and businesses 
4.       Place your order using the coupon code HIVE25 to receive $25* off your first order!
5.       Free pick up at The Hive RI on Fridays between 3-5 pm. Stop in or send a friend! It’s easy to grab and go!

Is Coworking for you?
Do you work at home?  Do you work out of cafes like Starbucks or Panera Bread?  Come by The Hive RI anytime from 9-5, Monday through Friday, & try out working ‘alone together’ in a space that isn’t a coffee shop or a restaurant but still has that same kind of feel.  We have couches, chairs, tables and desks, coffee and internet connection.  We won’t charge you for the first time or two.  It’s not for everyone but it’s perfect for some, it’s only $150 per month and $15 per hour for the conference room!  If you have questions, just email: Tuni, a.k.a. ‘The Queen Bee’, or if you want to sign up… tunischartner@gmail.com.
