The Greening of Detroit is one of the city's jewels from a non-profit standpoint. I am proud to be a volunteer at The Greening, which is helping to grow and improve Detroit from multiple standpoints: Tree-plantings, urban agriculture, workforce development, education -- the list goes on and on. Personally, my heart sings when I think about the neighborhoods that have gained so much benefit from The Greening's work. When you hear a story about the difference made in a neighborhood, it's so very powerful. Five-plus stars.

The Greening of Detroit has been planting green spaces in Detroit for over 20 years. The Greening is a big part of the solution to some of the vacant land issues facing Detroit. New growth forests, parks, green infrastructure and urban gardens are just some of the projects that this organization is tackling. Bravo!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would make it more visible to the people in the Metro Detroit area. Not as many people are aware of them as should be. People want to help, but they just don't know what to do. This is an excellent opportunity for people to get involved. Time commitments are minimal for volunteers and flexible. Imported from Detroit!
