DFC Working With Lots
Location: Throughout Detroit
Client: Detroit Future City
Goals: Provide Detroit Future City Plants for the working with lots program, Educate students and community member
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 funds will not only subsidize plant costs for DFC, we will be purchasing new lighting, materials and equipment to upgrade to the greenhouse in science hall. The upgrades will streamline our production process and allow us to get more native plants out into communities where they are needed most.
