Growing Thriving Communities (GTCI): Summer Youth Internship and Produce Distribution

Southwest Detroit Environmental Vision
Detroit
5/12/2022

This grant will support the Growing Thriving Communities Initiative (GTCI), a program that helps increase food security by engaging community and youth leaders to grow and distribute free, fresh produce to Detroit residents, community organizations, and anyone in need.  Participants will utilize Cadillac Urban Gardens, a raised bed garden that grows for and with local community members, to explore urban agriculture and other environmental career fields through SDEV's youth summer internship program and expand the scope and reach of SDEV's Produce Distribution Program.  Through participation, youth will gain knowledge within agricultural and environmental fields all while supporting the growing, cultivation, and distribution of free produce to the SW Detroit community and beyond.
