The Ann Arbor Awesome Foundation is helping fund free bike valet service at some Ann Arbor events and efforts to plant edible landscapes and perennials .
Jesse Tack of Abundant Michigan, Permaculture Ypsilanti thinks the grant will make a huge difference to his group. It will use the money to purchase the necessary tools to transform mono-crop land at Dawn Farm and elsewhere in the community. The tools include scythes, back-pack compost tea sprayers, pruners, and berry rakes.
Ann Arbor Awesome offers a one-thousand dollar grant each month to provide seed funding for innovative projects created by people in the area.
