Join DFC at the Volunteer Recruitment and
The Working with Lots Program is launching a workshop series! Throughout the next year we will be partnering with different Detroit organizations and businesses to offer nine workshops aimed at strengthening skills and capacity to successfully install Field Guide lot designs on your property and implement land-based placemaking techniques.
On Saturday, March 23 from 2-4 PM, join us as we partner with Keep Growing Detroit for the first workshop of the year!
1: Volunteer Recruitment and Management – Saturday March 23, 2-4 PM
With proper planning and recruitment, a volunteer group can help complete any task as desired whereas a poorly matched group can be problematic. Join us to learn about: recruiting, facilitating, keeping volunteers engaged, getting them to come back and more.
Location: Mathis Center, 19300 Greenfield Rd, Detroit, MI
Instructor: Keep Growing Detroit (Part of KGD’s Education Series)
Cost: $3 for Garden Resource Program Members, $5 for non-members

2: Planting 101 – Thursday April 25, 6-8 PM
This workshop will teach participants the proper techniques for planting the common sizes of different perennials and trees. We will cover how to plant a seed, bulb, plug, quart and gallon pots, bare root trees, and balled + burlap trees. Proper watering methods will also be discussed. This workshop is hands-on and will involve planting exercises in an I-do, we-do, you-do format.
