Wolverine Human Services, state kick off $50,000 crowdfunding campaign

From their fundraising page:

The Project

We plan to build a community garden and training site that will be cultivated by the residents of the streets surrounding the Wolverine Center and the John S Vitale Community Center. It will include the following key components:

A community garden with raised beds and paved pathways for growing herbs and vegetables that meets ADA Accessibility regulations.

A mixed-use structure that will be used as a neighborhood farmers’ market retail space, a garden-training classroom, and for agricultural equipment storage.

The site will be well-lit and secured so that community members can work their garden plots in a safe and friendly environment.
