On September 1st we moved two miles down the road from the USDA building into the Washtenaw County Services Building at 705 N. Zeeb Rd, Suite 201, Ann Arbor, MI 48103. Although it will take time to settle in, we love the new space and our new neighbors, the Water Resources Commissioner's Office! We are already working together on the Fall Tree & Native Plant Distribution coming up in October.
As tenants in a County Building we will be adopting the County guidelines around COVID and public safety. Although we are open for walk-in service, we recommend setting up an appointment ahead of time. We will be limiting our office space to a maximum of 4 people at once (including staff) and staff will be rotating in-office days and working from home. Our full draft COVID policy can be found on our website here. A drop box for orders and payments is available outside of our office door for your convenience.
This month we also welcomed Erez Brandvain, the new Conservation Technician! Erez will be working with farmers in the County on Conservation Planning and the Conservation Stewardship Program, focused in the Western Lake Erie Basin (see more on Erez in article below).
We look forward to seeing many of you at the Fall Tree & Native Plant pick up on October 2nd!
