Potlucking w Transition Ypsilanti

Transition Ypsilanti continues with regular inflows of energy from a variety of people. The idea of the Facebook page as the center of action continues to work pretty well, but some folks were feeling the lack of face-to-face interaction. (The Facebook page is here.)

Thus the weekly potluck! Check the page for the rotating location.  Lots of leadership is being provided by youth who are doing urban agriculture in Ypsilanti and nearby, especially the growers at Walnut Grove Urban Farm.    

Also in Transition Town Ypsi news: Mary G. is working on updating the Sustainable Ypsilanti website. The hope is that the website can be a hub of transition-like initiatives in our area.

The Abundant Michigan-Permaculture Ypsilanti group was founded several months ago, growing out of the TTY Permaculture Folk School. The group is meeting the first Monday of each month at the Growing Hope Center. We are seeking to apply permaculture solutions to all the challenges to Ypsi resilience and forming a working group to share labor and resources. First workdays have already taken place in August & more are planned for September.
