With their first six Learning Gardens officially installed and a spring planting season under their belts, we think it’s time to introduce our Big Green Detroit team to you, our community of supporters.
Small but mighty, this team of four is making big things happen in the Motor City. After kicking off their very first Detroit Learning Garden at Detroit Achievement Academy early this month, the team has had their hand full with garden construction, planting days, community meetings, and more.

What do you love most about Detroit? The grit of the people, the fact that we do not subscribe to the narrative that’s giving about us.  We keep moving forward to move their own story.

Fun fact: I love making people laugh!
