Fabulous family event in Rochester MI, with lots of activities !
On March 12, Deanne spoke at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Farmington on Connecting to the Earth and March 21 was guest presenter at Grand Valley College Agricultural Program, helping them get started on a Rocket Mass Stove for their greenhouse. This included design, soil testing, a mockup of a Rocket Cooker and a slideshow! April 16 was our foraging workshop where Deanne was joined by co-teacher Kelly Thiele, who is a certified mushroom harvester in Michigan. We all had a great time spending the day with our plant friends and meandering on the land.
April Interns came ! Cassidy, Alice and visiting others: Emerson, Peter, Charlie ! We are doing a wide variety of natural building and sustainable living skills, and are integrating into the larger permaculture movement through the Full Moon Potluck and the Oakland County Permaculture Meetup. Through these exploration they are finding meaingful pathways to sustainability and learning how to bring it home !
