Times for Visiting
We have a limited window for visitors due to the fact that we have businesses working in the building and we are trying to minimize distractions. We do, however, welcome you to join us for the following.
Brown Bag Lunch
Every Friday at noon we host a brown-bag lunch, followed by a tour at 1:00 pm. All are welcome to attend.
Thursday Sustainable Business Conversation
Every Thursday a group gathers to discuss various topics related to sustainable businesses (see our latest topics). All are free to join in on the discussion.
Book Conversation Group
Most Wednesdays at noon we host a conversation inspired by books about social change and facilitated by business-in-residence Elderberry. We spend a few months with each book. Many participants read the books in preparation for the conversation, but you needn't be reading it to join in. Check the calendar on the home page to see what we're reading at any given time and to confirm that we're meeting.
Most Tuesdays at 10:00 am, we host a conversation about permaculture led by Matt Sitek of businesses-in-residence Pill Pouch and Elderberry. This group takes an ongoing, deep dive into permaculture and uses the Green Garage's rooftop farm as a living learning environment.
Phone: 313 - 444 - 4054.
