June 4th

We spent a couple more days in Detroit on our way back from Kalamazoo. The team here are awesome. They ran power to the “V” which was parked on the adjacent lot. They have a beautiful garden on the property which is owned by the Grocer across the road. We had a bonfire at night and got to know a little about Detroit.

From the time we arrived, John and Joe (owners of Gigante-grocery store) were absolutely supportive and told us we could park on the empty lot or in their grocery parking lot. We got really good service too. I’m in admiration of the things that are going well in Detroit. Some very dedicated and hard working people take care of things at 5900 Michigan Ave. where Occupy was invited as a tenant in lieu of fixing things. They have done an amazing job. Repairs and building are all being volunteered. Our hats go off to Detroit for making a difference in their community. (more…)
