We’re expanding in lots of ways! While our website is staying right where it is our actual physical location will be moving soon. Sammit and I bought our first home. It is SW of Ann Arbor (one of our favorite places) in a city called Saline. We have some work to do on the house before we move, but next growing season we’ll have plenty of space to expand beyond our current 700 square feet to fill as much as the 2.3 acres as we want (which will probably be a little at a time). It’s zoned as agriculture which means we’ll have no problems adding chickens or goats to the mix – though no word on when that’s going to happen. We are very excited and will post more pictures and updates as they happen.
Also, we’re adding to our family very soon (hopefully next week)! Please be patient and stick around through the next two months though we may not have much material posted while we adjust to all the changes.
If you’ve ever wondered where I get my bitchin’ bling, this has been my secret for the last three years. Bring cash and a keen eye for style.
If it interests you, check out the Midwest Organizer Bootcamp – it’s in Ann Arbor this year! (November 10-11). I’ve already signed up and would love some familiar company. Straight from their website:
Last year, students from 64 universities and colleges came together to sharpen our organizing skills and build a movement strong enough to fight the attack on students, workers, immigrants, and our democracy. Right now workers across the country are taking back power, from Chicago teachers to California Walmart warehouse workers, and it’s time for students to step up our game. While we face huge tuition hikes and frozen wages, our university administrators enjoy huge raises and corporations make record profits.
Join us, and together we’ll develop the skills we need to mobilize larger numbers of students, train new young organizers, and win campaigns for immigration justice, labor rights, education affordability and access, international solidarity, and more. Across all three regions of the US, we’ll spend two full days practicing one-on-one conversations to move our peers to action, swapping campaign skills, and learning from the recent student victories over tuition hikes, worker exploitation and corporate greed from New Jersey to Wisconsin to California.
