Gardening in Detroit

I just read an article about urban gardening in Detroit.  It is an article on the NPR site by Erica Roon.  Here it is in it’s entirety.

You can also go to the site that explains all about the group that is organizing this endeavor.  Try clicking this link for an interesting “read”.

Detroit as a city, may appear to be failing miserably, but some folks are pulling together and attempting to set up Urban Gardens, thereby feeding themselves, educating their children, and fostering some pride where none seems to exist.Image

I hope you’ll read that article.  It shows again why gardening is important.  Where all else seems to fail, we can still get our hands into the dirt and create food where none existed before.  Those same hands can create beauty both outside where flowers grow, and inside where those flowers brighten our homes and give hope to the downtrodden.

Keep gardening Detroit!  Show the world what you’re made of!
