Wednesday, March 19, 7:00 pm

Ferndale Public Library, 222 East Nine Mile Road, Ferndale, MI

This is Transition Ferndale’s regular “third Wednesday of the month” meeting for March.

Ferndale’s Becky Hammond will talk about back yard and front yard gardens, and “weeds” that turn out to be edible; even tasty. Sherry Wells will talk about the Ferndale Time Bank Garden Group. Live in an apartment, with no space for gardening? Maybe a community garden is the way to go. We’ll talk about it.

The meeting is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be available. of ordinary people doing extraordinary things.

For an unusual instance of planning ahead, next month’s third Wednesday meeting (April 16, 7:00 pm) will feature a 1 hour and 7 minute video, “Transition 2.0.” It features 16 stories from 7 countries around the world. You’ll hear about communities printing their own money, growing food, building localized economies and even setting up community power stations. Transition is a social experiment about responding to uncertain times with community solutions. After the video, we’ll discuss how we might go about solving some local problems. Bring your ideas and your talents to share.
