This event is in Kalamazoo. It is free if you don't want to join the race. If you'd like to come, I think it'd be a good idea to arrange carpools. If you want to stay in Kalamazoo all day you can ride with us. We are going to Bells for the Crane Wives show afterward and will probably stay until the show ends. I'd be happy to help you arrange ride shares.
The event, farmwellnessday5k.org on May 17th will be a fun opportunity for people interested in permaculture, sustainable farming, homesteading, community living and see unique housing construction projects. Let me know, Thanks, Tony
