Sustainable Living Potluck and Presentation (in Detroit)

Posted by ppna on April 7, 2009

I pulled this from the Ypsilanti Transitions site.. This may be an interesting event — It is a potluck so visit the site for more info.

On Saturday April 18th, 2009 the author of the book “Toolbox for Sustainable City Living: a do-it ourselves guide”, Scott Kellogg will be giving a workshop here in Detroit at Spirit of Hope from 6pm ’til ?

We will start the night off with a local foods potluck @ 6pm
Local food will be somewhat limited in April so no one will be turned away if their food is not local. We are envisioning much more local food availability in our future.

Scott is one of the co-founder of The Rhizome Collective in Austin, Tx. The Rhizome Collective practices Radical Sustainability and have provided their community with a beautiful educational facility that also doubles as a creative venue for local and visiting artists, musicians, and performers. After doing Guerrilla Bio-remediation in their neighborhood they were awarded a large grant from EPA to further their work. http://www.rhizomecollective.org/rust.html

The Rhizome Collective have an intensive Sustainability/Permaculture training called RUST: Radical Urban Sustainability Training from which the “Toolbox” book was inspired. Visit http://www.rhizomecollective.org

Okay, it’s a Saturday night in Detroit in spring after a brutal winter but we all know the best parties in Detroit start at mid-night giving you plenty of time to potluck, workshop, and then party.
If you read Scott’s book and have questions on how to apply sustainable practices to Detroit this would be a good time. This will be an awesome presentation you are not going to want to miss if you have any interest in permaculture, radical sustainability, bio-shelters, guerrilla gardening, making your own energy, creating green space, green economy, restoring wetlands, micro-livestock, city chickens,
natural building, getting local and creating a better environment for yourself, your family, friends, community, and Detroit.
