Detroit Abloom Pavilion Deck

Detroit Abloom is a project under the nonprofit, The Garden Detroit, who's mission is to use cut flower farming as a way to transform vacant land in Detroit into beautiful and productive landscapes.

Thanks to our last GoFundMe campaign, we were able to raise enough money to finish the roof for our pavilion. We are still in awe of the support surrounding this project and we cannot thank you enough! Already, we are using the pavilion to give classes and host meetings. We can't wait for all the future opportunities to host events, weddings, workshops and community meetings. We wan't this to be a space for everyone to enjoy!

Now, to finish the pavilion, we need to build a wood deck and to install electricity. Please help us in any way you can to finish this project. We would love to have it finished in time for our Dahlia Festival on September 30th, so that we can celebrate it's completion together! We need $6,500 to buy the wood decking and an underlayment of joists. To save money, we will be working on it ourselves with help of friends and volunteers.

And for the electrical, we need to pull a permit and to pay a contractor at least $1,000 to install outlets and floodlights so we can have classes and outdoor concerts in the evening.

Thank you in advance - we could not do this without your support!
