The Greening of Detroit

As an avid hater of the endless news reports and documentaries highlighting the "blight and despair" in Detroit I'm here to tell you that that's NOT what fills this city of gorgeous vintage buildings and some of the greatest and most prolific street art one could ever hope to stumble upon.  Something else incredible going on is the planting of over 80,000 trees around the city since Greening Of Detroit was established in the late 1980s. In the city once known as "The City of Trees" because of the incredible tree tunnels on so many residential streets, Greening of Detroit not only made a corner plot of land more beautiful with trees the day we recorded about 50 of their finest volunteers but also with their voices.
