The Transition Ypsilanti “Permaculture Folk School” met for about 18 months or so and then went on a hiatus for about 8 months. Now the group has morphed into “Abundant Michigan – Permaculture Ypsilanti,” a new group mostly organizing through Facebook. So far the group has been meeting monthly since June 2012, engaging in work days (also known as “Permablitzes”), sprouting a Growers Guild of folks each committed to growing 200 perennial food plants in ten different useful species, and much more. The main organizer is Jesse Tack. (Thanks, Jesse!) Although many participants have carried over from the previous Permaculture Folk School group, many more are now participating. About 65 are part of the group, with attendance being between 15-20 at the monthly meeting, which takes place the first Monday of each month at Growing Hope.
You’ll be hearing much more about AMBY! Join us at our first Monday meetings — we’ll be addressing growing but also the many other aspects of permaculture as depicted on the Permaculture Flower above.
