If you’re loco for all things local, save the date Saturday, Aug. 25th. The Greening of Detroit needs your energy at its upcoming LIVE LOVE LOCAL Celebration.
Localvores are people committed to eating foods grown and produced in their own backyard. It’s a stance health-conscious young people have been adopting nationwide, and we’d love to join, but how many farms have you seen in the city of Detroit? Land that currently houses vacant lots and abandoned buildings could be our answer. With RecoveryPark, three miles of land on Detroit’s near east side will be developed into an area that could break the mold for urban agriculture.
They say serving others is a reward in itself… But a free car wouldn’t hurt, either. A new promotion launched over the weekend encourages community involvement through a series of friendship-related challenges.
