In Detroit, on the east-side, neighbors and volunteers have recently gathered to celebrate the completion of a 1.4 million dollar project at Skinner Park.
“About 10,700 volunteers worked on the park during the first six days of August. They also cleared more than 300 blocks of blight, remodeled 80 houses, created safer pathways for neighborhood schoolchildren and boarded up 362 vacant houses beginning in June.”
They are finishing up this project by completing custom wooden raised beds for a new urban garden where members of the community will be able to grow food together.
