Redzone Garden

We are calling in our community to help support the realization of Redzone Garden. Redzone Garden is a community garden located on the east side of Detroit, growing food and herbs and providing a space for learning and connection in the city. We invision a space where we can gather in our love for the Earth, cultivating food, herbal medicine, community education and creativity. We hope to use our collective experience in community education, herbal medicine making, permaculture design and organic gardening to heal ourelves, the land and our community.
