Block Club to Clean Up Vacant Lots

The Lakewood South Block Club will be making an impact on their block this Saturday morning, March 21. They will be cleaning up two city-owned vacant lots (838 and 848 Lakewood Street) in the Jefferson-Chalmers neighborhood in preparation for a community garden. Over the next month, the block club has several planned gardening events, including a garden design meeting and a work-day kick-off in April. The block club is a member of the Garden Resource Program in Detroit, which provides packets of seeds, transplants, and technical support to community gardens for only $20.

If you are interested in volunteering  with the Lakewood South Block Club or would like to learn how you can contribute to this effort through monetary or in-kind donations, please contact Caitlyn Pisarski at (313) 822-0062 or cpisarski@creeksidedetroit.org.
