Imagine a quiet retreat from the noise and hustle of the city. A space that immerses you into an experience rich with colors, smells, and even tastes of biodiversity. Urban food forests can completely change the way we weave modern life into the grounding, healing power of Nature.
We are seeking your help to acquire the plants and landscaping materials to grow this space in an infill lot in SW Detroit. We are currently refining the landscape plan (pictured), designed with and for the community. We've partnered with permaculture experts Resilient Spirals LLC to curate the native plant list, execute the development, and provide skill-share with the community.
This project has the potential to be the first of its kind in metro-Detroit and one of only a handful of urban examples globally; our model can influence the future developments of Detroit.
All donors will be recognized on adjacent signage scattered throughout the lot and on our website. Our team will match proceeds 50 cents to the dollar, until the goal is met.
