GREENING OF DETROIT
March 9, 2011

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.

MY ROLE:
General Member of the Public & I'll be volunteering with the urban farmers this year.
