Pingree Park in Detroit, MI is making a comeback – thanks to Project EverGreen and a host of volunteers
It was a chilly and rainy day for staging materials for Project EverGreen’s Pingree Park renovation in Detroit, MI. No one minded. We were all caught up in the spirit of community giving. Everyone was energized to get started with phase one of this two-phase revitalization project – the second of which will be completed in spring of 2018.
Generous donations of funds, materials and manpower from Magna International along with many other companies (listed below), including our valued friends in the green industry, are making this revitalization possible. These organizations and their people know the importance of giving. They grasp that as we care for, enrich and revitalize green spaces, we are also enriching the lives of those who reside in the communities surrounding them. By caring for the trees and turf everywhere, we strengthen and enable them to continue to produce clean, cool air to sustain us all.
Phase one of the project was on November 3-4, 2017, many in the Pingree community joined the volunteers in this labor of community love. Volunteers from Real Green Systems were among them.
Pingree Park is located at 8400-8598 E Forest Ave, Detroit, MI 48214.
