The North Cass Community Garden is a community green space serving residents of the Cass Corridor. Throughout the summer, University of Detroit Mercy School of Architecture faculty and students are working on the Community Table project, to design and build improvements to the garden that will increase physical accessibility and further the original goals of the space: to bring together Detroiters to share food, drink, knowledge, initiatives, activism, skills and more.
On September 21, 2019, the North Cass Community Garden will host the following events and activities, centered around the Community Table, to highlight the new capacity of the garden and demonstrate the ways in which it serves the community:
· Dyeing – a workshop featuring dyes derived from plants by Kayla Powers of Salt Textile Studios
· Dining – shared food and drink items inspired by the bounty of the garden
· Discussions – presentations and Q&A on beekeeping and lepidoptery (butterfly nursery)
· Demonstration – a seed-saving workshop by Dave Roberts, Master Gardener
· Dance – an evening dance party featuring Detroit techno
· Design – a presentation and activity by Professors Kristin Nelson and James Leach, and the student design-build team.
