VEJ Garden Manager Bianca Danzy wants to take down a burned down home to build up a hoop house and flower garden across the street from Hope House! We are partnering with her to help raise the funds for this project.
Bianca has been awarded a grant for $2000 to purchase a property to establish a hoop house and garden site. We would like your support in purchasing this property and safely deconstructing the burned home across the street from us. The estimated cost of buying the home, paying the back taxes on it, and deconstructing it is approximately $10,000.
Once the house is removed, we will convert the lot into a hoop house and plant a garden around it. The hoop house will serve to grow native plants and vegetables, which we will share with neighbors and visitors. It will also extend our gardening season and allow us to cultivate transplants that will help us further promote gardening and sustainable agriculture in Detroit.
Funding beyond our goal will be invested in seeds and materials for maintaining the hoop house.
