In the podcast, pt. 2, Geoff mentions 8 schools in Detroit teaching permaculture curriculum? Or was it that had active systems on the school grounds?
And a Fab unit? Whats that?
I live in Michigan and plan to help bring a PDC to Detroit 2012 and was really excited to hear that.
Anybody know anything else about that?
Detroit btw, is an truly prime candidate for large scale permaculture works. There are 58sq km of vacant and abandoned land. Detroit also has several buried rivers of note. It doesnt take much to imagine an interconnected web of food forest and grazing systems within the Motor Capitol of the World! Living water systems would be a smart move too.
We'd love to bring Geoff, Paul, Sepp out to help build this vision of Detroit asap. Still looking for funding....

i can't wait to follow the progress in Detroit...it is such a perfect model for demonstrating collapse and rebuilding. I really appreciated Lawton's comments in the pod cast when he talked about the classes in Detroit
There are no experts, Just people with more experience.

yeah im close to Detroit too. in fact we are trying to bring Larry Santoyo here next summer, details to be worked out. but it sure would be good know those contacts.
I know that this thread is several years old. Did any of this ever pan out? I am interested because we are fixin' to move to Metro Detroit in the next few months and I am looking to connect with other permies in the area.
New to Detroit. Looking to help out with current permaculture and urban farming projects. Here is my blog from when I was an urban homesteader in Ohio but I am continuing to post about our suburban adventures in Permaculture. http://crunchymamasurbanhomestead.wordpress.com/
Anderson gave himself the promotion. So I gave myself this tiny ad:
