with SWB and Henry Ford Academy: Elementary School
Build Days at the Botanical Gardens!!
Coming up this week:
Field Trip #2 - Recycling Here! Detroit
We will then walk around the corner to the Lincoln Street Art Park to discuss how the reuse of materials has changed the Detroit community. This is the illegal dumping site turned into an open park for the community! We will discuss various art pieces like Frank the Dino, who is made of plastic! Finally, we walk down the street a little further to the Fisher Canyon. This train alley has been cleaned up and is now a rotating art gallery for artists. Here we discuss the difference between tagging and street art along with the sense of respect that is incorporated into the Fisher Canyon.
If there is time we can walk across the street to Sticky Feet Farm, which was built solely out of found items (except the soil). There is a plastic bottle greenhouse and raised beds made out of glass bottles!
The SustainEd team will be leaving Ann Arbor at around 9:30 am and returning by 2 pm. If you would like to join us and catch a ride with the team, please email Sibu, Mim or Brie before Friday.

Is your calendar free Thursday April 17th ? Green Living Science (who is organizing our next field trip at the Recycling Center) would love for you to come enjoy good company, and refreshments at their art park fund raiser (It’s from 4-7 PM at 5926 Lincoln Street.)
This event will be intended to help raise money for Green Living Science's new educational program, an outdoor class room! With the shipping container classroom GLS will help DPS students learn the importance of biology / sustainability, and the three R's (reduce, reuse, recycle)!
It would be great if you could attend, as having you there will raise awareness of the issue and help us attract others interested in educating the youth in Detroit about the environment!
Please let Mary Claire Lamm know if you are available to attend. For more information check out the Facebook Event!
