||Welcome to Sustainable Ypsilanti! We hope you will continue your journey
toward a sustainable future with us by visiting, blogging or possily becoming active in
some of the local organizations to which we've linked (if you aren't already)! This
is a totally volunteer driven site, with he goal of connecting our community memebers,
like you, to all of the wondeful organizations that are already tackling transitional
issues of sustainability. We are continually amazed and impressed by the dedicated folks
around us who are leading us in a better direction.
In an effort to organize our links
and information, we have created a Sustainable Ypsilanti flower (inspired by the
Permaculture Principles flower), representing some of the key issues in which we can all
make a positive difference, individually and together.
Please share this site with others who aim for a Sustainable Ypsilanti! Enjoy!

organizations that are beyond Ypsilanti as well (Ann Arbor, Washtenaw County, and even
some statewide organizations). We just happend to be Ypsi people who want to spread the
word locally, but we are definitely not excluding everyone out there who is making a
