7cb6826e-eacf-41f6-aa19-5ba60a8880f6.sized-1000x1000We are grateful and excited about growing with you this month!

A heartfelt thanks to hOur Exchange Ypsilanti for accepting our application and connecting us with a wider community.  Check them out!  http://hourexchangeypsi.org/

Our last gathering brought a handful of us together to share clothes, books and ideas about what it means to share freely.  Although the weather will keep us indoors, this photo from Carrboro, NC is a welcome goal for us this summer!

We welcome your questions and interest and hope you can join us on Tuesday, March 6 from 6:30-8:30pm at the Ypsilanti Senior Center, 1015 N Congress.

See you there!

Planning Council to resume- Tuesday, December 5

Hello Once Again Friends!

Our last scheduled meet up fell on election day & the Senior Center is a polling place.  Apologies for being so quiet this month!

This months meeting is cancelled.

We will resume our council on the first Tuesday of December.  Keep your eyes open for info here, to prepare us for the gathering.

Agreeing in October to slow the process and debut the Faire in Spring, we would like to build our momentum and resources over the winter.  We’ve explored a lot of ground with our first two sessions & are excited to move forward and dig deeper through the cold and lonely months.

Collect your thoughts & visions about community building and radical exchange.  We look forward to meeting again, next month!

Welcome Planning Council!

What does the Everything is Free Faire actually look like?

Join us this Tuesday, October 3 at 6pm to participate!

Everyone who attends is invited to participate in this council, exercising horizontal leadership within our working model of the faire.  Bring something to share or just yourself.  This week we are specifically looking for hygienic and household items for Puerto Rico.
Meet at 1015 N. Congress and we will set up and run through a day at the faire.  On a microscale, for a couple of hours, and incubate the seeds we are ready to plant throughout the community.

Our first planning council meeting was a great success!  We joined together for a meal and circular discussion of our goals, intentions and backgrounds.  Many supporting ideas were generated, and in our vigor we agreed to call our upcoming gathering an incubator faire.

It’s on!
