We want to create romance again and bring back the simple things in life; to create moments, with birds and other wildlife.

It was very interesting; it was an example of charity and work in a working process. I hope to instill in people who haven’t otherwise had a chance to have this community/opportunity to help the environment and beautify the community. The process fell in line with what I teach and preach.
We did. We added different trees to the Urban Edge, and just kept the flowering trees in the Forest Patcher.
Beautification and space activitation
Through Detroit Land Bank. Those wonderful people, I had an idea and Darryl directed me to that lot. Marshall Bullock and Darryl Earl invited me to an event and told me how things were working, and showed me the lots. I wrote a proposal for what I would do with it and named it and everything else fell into place.
I learned how to plant a tree, and how hard it is, and what goes into it. And how to coordinate volunteers.
We asked them to allow us to use their electricity for the Thursday “Concerts in the Park” events. It further allowed us to introduce ourselves and our park to the community.
I did not conduct any other fundraising.
The main challenge is the watering component and how to implement it, but I think we got the answer. Everything else was pretty much manageable and doable. By implementing several strategic plans, a combination of suggestions and ideas, coupled together they create a solution to the problem.
Chet landscaping to do the grass cutting and weeding. We want to be able to annually go in and do stuff, get the ground ready for fall plantings. I want to say mulching. I like the water tote idea, implemented with “adopt a tree” program, and the water admission for Thursday’s Concerts in the Park, with pallets to hold water jugs.
