Event description

Description

Fort Street’s Open Door ministry and The Greening of Detroit, a nonprofit environmental agency, are collaborating on an initiative called DIG – Detroiters in Gardens. The program is designed to educate and inspire Detroiters to prepare and eat healthy, fresh food through hands-on experiential learning at Lafayette Greens garden.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to plant, nurture, and harvest a bed of vegetables and herbs throughout the growing season. Our health and wellness educator will host 18 sessions on nutrition, healthy eating, cooking demonstrations, and meal planning. There will also be a focus on the benefits of green space, spending time in nature, and the connection between Mother Earth and mindfulness.
