"We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."

Get Involved

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 or not, and make a positive difference in Detroit.
