A Time to Help DTE Energy

Jun 25, 2014 | News | 0 comments


When: July 26, 2014  |   9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.

Project: For the past eight years, DTE Energy converted some of its land into gardens managed by Gleaners Community Food Bank to grow fresh produce vital to basic nutrition.  The harvest feeds needy people through Gleaners’ partnerships with neighborhood food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters & social service agencies.  Currently, there are four gardens in the metro-Detroit area that collectively amount to 2 acres.  This garden network is referred to as DTE Energy Farm.  Harvested crops from the Westland garden goes to the Lighthouse Home Missions pantry.

Weather-permitting, Volunteers will be weeding by hand & garden hoes, mulching garden paths with wood chips, laying compost on vegetable beds, picking harvest ready crops, and other outdoor activities 

Where: Westland Garden   |   38155 Cherry Hill Rd.  |  Westland, MI 48186  |  Map

Prepare: Wear closed-toe shoes for safety.  Bring your own gloves and if you have garden tools: trowels, hoes, rakes, shovels.  Note:  Inclement weather or temperatures above 90 degrees will cancel this event.  No gardening experience is required; minors must be accompanied by an adult.


Parking: Private road next to garden
