Evan Dayringer and Britten Stringwell
The young couple says their community of family and friends will keep them in Ann Arbor. They note that their college educations could always help kick in income--she can do graphic design, he can tutor math--but "as far as going into the traditional mainstream economy, I don't think they'd have us," Dayringer says. "If you've been out of that, or even in that, there's like eight job seekers for every position. I don't even see that as an option."
He doesn't sound discouraged. "All these different projects--B Bars, Eat Ideas Farm, the Yellow Barn, our family--everything is sort of coming together on a shoestring."
