We have been busy the last several weeks in the garden! We have almost all of our garden space planted with a wide variety of crops - tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, corn, greens, squash, the list goes on.
In bigger news...we have been applying for grants with the non-profit and are finalists in a grant competition! On Thursday, June 23rd, we will be giving a presentation along with two other finalists in front of a voting audience. Whoever gets the most votes is awarded $3000 for their project. Third place is given $1000 to help their cause, so either way we have already won. However, we need you! Please come show your support for Fireweed and the other great projects happening around Detroit.
Thursday, June 23rd. 6pm
3434 Russell St. Detroit
If you can't make the event, we would still love to see you down in the neighborhood! There is a lot to do in the garden and bike shop, and many more projects in the works .
