December 10, 2015

The DFC Implementation Office partners with Keep Growing Detroit, an organization that promotes a food sovereign city where the majority of fruits and vegetables Detroiters consume are grown by residents within the city’s limits, to share information about the Urban Roots Community Garden Training Program.

The Urban Roots Community Gardening Training Program is a 9-week hands-on course designed to teach community leaders core community organizing and horticulture skills. The course emphasizes organic methods and is designed for gardens that are producing food. Urban Roots is open to residents of Detroit, Highland Park, and Hamtramck who demonstrate involvement and/or interest in community gardening in those cities.
