We cannot do it alone. Each year, we recruit between 4,000 and 6,000 volunteerS to help us plant trees, clean up parks, and work in farm gardens. There are plenty of opportunities to dig in the dirt and make a positive difference in Detroit.
You can register as an individual, or coordinate a group effort with your friends, colleagues or organization. The benefits are tangible, immediate, and ultimately improve the quality of life for thousands of citizens. You can volunteer for a community tree planting or provide ongoing maintenance for green projects of every kind.
Register for an upcoming volunteer event on your own or with a group. We can’t wait to see you!
