Lotsa Detroit

Georgia Street Community Garden

Wonderful community garden in Detroit. Residents of the community have given new use to empty lots in the neighborhood. There are plans for a community orchard. This Saturday, May 16th, is a yard sale and bake sale to help fund the Building Project for the community center. And here's a nice post from the Sweet Juniper blog about the garden, and other great things about Detroit as well: http://www.sweet-juniper.com/

Paxahau webcast

Paxahau has actually been hosting a lot of Detroit artists on their weekly webcasts. And they are doing some interesting Q&A segments on artists who are performing at the festival in a few weeks, many of whom are Detroiters!!
