Hello there! This summer we will be packing our bags and headed to Cleveland. It's a bittersweet moment for me, as the extended family lives there but my wonderful network of crunchy mommas are here in Phoenix! So to help make this move much sweeter, I'm hoping to find a new group of mommas I can connect and share with! It would be so wonderful to be around like-minded individuals, in fact I need this and I'm sure many of you understand where I'm coming from!!
I'm looking for groups, clubs or something I can be a part of to meet folks, all ideas are welcome. I was planning to check out a La Leche League meeting when I get there... other than this I didn't see any info on the meetup site or just general info on local babywearing or homecircle groups? I was beginning to think they don't exist?! Please help prove me wrong mommas! :)

Hello, I live in Cleveland, and I consider myself a fairly crunchy person. I don't know what the crunchy "scene" here is like as much as I did in other places when I was a full time sahm. There are definitely crunchier areas though. Where are you thinking of moving?
Thanks for your posts, I was getting worried I wouldn't here from anyone! :)
Spring Garden sounds like a great school, I'm not sure if we'll be in Ohio long enough to send our son to school there. Very good to know just in case we're planted there longer than I'm expecting :) We're planning to live in the Shaker Heights area and I'm thinking I'll continue to be a SAHM so would love to get involved with any of the various groups available if possible.
We are relocating in july this year and am looking for a nice montessori or waldorf as well for my 2 yr old to start part time.
We are hoping to find a rental in shaker heights, univ hts, cleveland hts area.

the montessori school is on fairmount blvd in cleveland heights. I hear its way nice. Check out the hestler street fair. Cleveland heights and shaker heights are fairly hip places. The shaker hts farmers market is amazing and hopefully you'll meet some great people there.

I am in Pittsburgh. For a few years I have been a vendor at the Last Minute Market at the Screw Factory in W. Lakewood, West Cleveland. With 80-100 mostly Cleveland handmade vendors, there is possible opportunity to make connections with crunchy there. It is held in December 2012. I won't be there again until after I finish my fine art degree thesis, but hope to be there again in 13.
Good luck finding a common ground. :)
