Detroit Biodiversity Network Wins 2019

Ford College Community Challenge Award

In October of 2019, DBN was awarded funding through the Ford College Community Challenge (Fc3), to partner with a local non-profit in order to to meet an immediate need in the city of Detroit. We chose to partner with Detroit Future City and supply plants for their Working with Lots program. There are a limited number of local native plant producers and we are proud to be a source here in Detroit and contribute to the work being done by DFC.

The FC3 award will support plant production for the Working with Lots program, infrastructural upgrades to the Science Hall greenhouse, and stipends for student trainees engaged in DBN's Sustainable Urban Landscape Collaborative program.
