Now that we've got that taken care of, here's a description of the project from the Peace Mob Gardens Facebook page.
We have adopted a city block where every home has been burnt down, and would like to develop it into an orchard. The perimeter of the 4 acre parcel will be surrounded with a living fence of Grape Vines. Inside will be planted with various fruit trees that will be trained into giant Peace signs.
Funds will be used to level the land, purchase supplies for forms for the "Peace Trees", living fence, and pathways. Remaining funds will purchase as many fruit trees, and supplies to grow vines as possible. If there is extra we will build raspberry, strawberry, and other fruit beds.
This project would be as a continuation of a project that already consists of a Community Garden currently feeding people and helping to build community in a long neglected portion of Flint Michigan's east side. In addition to providing food and a sense of community our community garden and related projects are also used to help demonstrate sustainable methods of urban living and teach science and environmental awareness to inner city youth.
Flint's problems can seem overwhelming, but small projects like this one can make a difference. No, this won't transform Flint's economy, but it's a start toward something better.
