Join @jadoredetroit, @brooklynoutdoor, and @detroitbikecity Saturday, May 9thas we continue to transform blight to beauty on Detroit’s lower east side side with the planting of 5,000 tulip poplar trees.

Over 1,400 volunteers came out last year to work with us to make agricultural history by contributing to one of the largest Urban Reforestation projects in the country with the planting of 15,000 trees.  We are looking forward to being a part of this years efforts and help work together toward a more green and vibrant Detroit.

In addition to tree planting, there will be live music, equipment demonstrations, face painting, educational tours, complimentary BBQ + ICE CREAM, and Bike Valet sponsored by Jason Hall @ Detroit Bike City.
