Transition Ann Arbor Fall ReSkilling Festival

In Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA, Transition Ann Arbor and Rudolf Steiner School sponsored a full-day "ReSkilling Festival.”

About 160 people attended over 30 amazing sessions on topics ranging from building hoop houses to composting, making herbal remedies, canning, starting a root cellar, dancing, singing, creating community art, goat-milking, spinning, and starting neighborhood action groups.  We gathered over the lunch hour to celebrate the international day of climate action and give the planet a hand!

The Transition Ann Arbor initiating team: Nathan Ayers, Lisa Dugdale,
Jeannine LaPrad, Jeanne Mackey, Jeannine Palms
