Detroit Sugarbush

Black to the Land Coalition

This grant will support a partnership between Black to the Land Coalition, a team of urban Indigenous leaders, the City of Detroit, and other local organizations that are creating an urban sugarbush in Rouge Park. The purpose of the sugarbush is to connect Detroiters to Indigenous experts in the cultural tradition of making maple sugar. With this grant, the sugarbush organizers will provide equipment and supplies for gatherings at the site, engage a designer to develop a plan for permanent infrastructure, and retain Planet Detroit to create a short documentary about the sugarbush operation.
