The Old Stone Mill Center offering classes this fall
Pauline and Mike to Speak in Monterey
Come hear Pauline Dongala and Mike speak about our work together, helping her send supplies to her home village of Bikie in the Republic of Congo. Pauline has been working for years, building a church and school and next a water well. We’ve been customizing upcycled bicycles for multipurpose use, making them strong enough to carry multiple riders or large loads of material. We’ve also been sending linens, grain bags and other useful items along with the shipping containers that Pauline organizes.

Bikes now in Bikie!
The 26 bikes we customized finally arrived at The Daniel M. Milondo Primary School in Bikie in the Republic of Congo! We are so happy to see the joy they bring and plan to make more to send soon.

The Old Stone Mill Center’s mission is to create public space for use by the creative community, including a center for re-use of materials diverted from the waste stream; art spaces and a machine shop with equipment and tools available to those who cannot afford to fully outfit their own studios; and to provide space for community members to come together to learn and experiment in arts and technology. There is a strong creative culture and strong embrace of environmental and energy concerns in the Berkshire County region, but it is often out of reach to everyday people. The Old Stone Mill Center will be a place for anyone to gain access to materials and means to participate more fully in creative and innovative endeavors.
Learn more About Us and our partners in this endeavor. Construction on Phase I of our interior renovations starts soon, so stay tuned to our News blog for updates as we prepare to host programs and events on site.
