On behalf of Crow House and additionally in partnership with five other community organizations, we submitted tree grant proposals which could result in up to 600 fruit trees within the City of Detroit: two grants were for east side locations, and four for west side (Southwest) locations. When the grant determination has been made, an update will be posted!
Crow House selected the type of fruit trees based on zone hardiness and height, to accommodate the restrictions of various planting locations. Proposed areas were selected on the basis of low canopy cover and typically other considerations, such as a vegetative buffer. We will assist with procurement, planting and initial maintenance.
Depending on funding, our partners may include:
- University of Michigan
- Southwest Detroit Environmental Vision (SDEV)
- Chadsey-Condon Community Organization
- We Want Green, Too!
- City of Harper Woods/Chandler Park Academy/Regent Park neighborhood
