The Land Bank is continuing the 'Clean & Green' program this year, and the deadline is fast approaching.
An application can be picked up at the Land Bank at 452 S. Saginaw Street on the 2nd floor, or found online.
A requirement of a 25 lot minimum is set, with options to do more.
It is required you have your own tools; and Liability Insurance or a waiver form, signed by each participant / parent or guardian, are mandatory.
Questions? Call or e-mail Natalie (810) 293-0663 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Got kids in your 'hood ' in need of some structure? Have knowledge to share on gardening? Plant stock you could donate? Leadership skills you could implement?
If you think about it, even if you don't want to be an active participant...there's a million other things to be, to help some kids find there place in making Flint better.
And Maybe FREE FOOD!, as people learn to make ongoing sustainable changes to the landscape of a changing city.
