Skills Bank

The skills bank is a searchable database of available resources available in the Pioneer Valley for Sustainable projects.

The PVSN is collecting local references and categorizing by appropriate skills categories.
Contact the webmaster for entry form to be added to the database.

The current state of the project is to collect entries of anyone in the sustainability field in the Pioneer Valley.

You can still help develop the skill categories and you are welcome to add to the categories in the
Skills Survey
