In light of COVID-19 and state guidelines, Amherst Neighbors has developed online virtual ways of gathering. We look forward to one day offering in person programs

Amherst Neighbors creates virtual social and educational opportunities by and for members, including monthly writing, gardening groups, book discussion, social justice presentations, and discussions on relevant topics. 

Programs led by Amherst Neighbors are intended to entertain and educate, and include monthly coffee gatherings, a speaker series and more.

Interest Groups, started by members who want to get together around a certain interest, are listed on this website. Any member can join or start one. Some examples are: social distant hiking, biking, knitting and gardening.
