This is a really cool location but it is a little bit of an abused spot. For a long time it used to have truck trailers sitting on it. We will be completely tearing out old fencing and trees to create more safety and visibilty for the park. We need landscaping work to fill in and build up some of the natural water elements within the area and create art and garden spaces side by side.

There are already several creative types involved including Amanda Partridge Box (sculpture!), John Sauve (sculpture!), Brownbag aka Malt (graffiti mural!), Marianne Audrey Burrows (mural!) Jessica Green (site designer!), James Willer, (site manager!), Michelle DiMecurio (public relations!), Matthew Naimi (green collaborator!) as well as a few others. Through teamwork, community backing and good old fashioned pulling up the sleeves, we're gonna make this space a lovely destination for the neighborhood.

WHAT THE MONEY IS FOR!

Landscaping fabric, 300 yards $200 ish.

Site grading and fill $600 ish

Seeds, hand tools, contractor bags, shovels, rakes, gloves for volunteers, flowers and shrubbery, (Bring me some shrubbery!) $250

Spray paint for Brownbag (it's a big wall) $400

So there you have it folks. We have a team, a place, a plan! Thank you for any support you can give us and have any awesome day.  Hit me up if you would like to volunteer.

*This project has the support of Detroit Synergy, Midtown Inc. and the Michigan Council on Arts and Cultural Affairs.
