Keep Growing Detroit helps communities flourish

While I was at TEDMED, I had the pleasure of hearing a presentation by Ashley Atkinson, co-director of Keep Growing Detroit.

Keep Growing DetroitI was thrilled to see a voice from Detroit represented among international leaders in health and medicine — and telling a good-news story at that.

The work this organization does isn’t just turning abandoned lots into community gardens. It’s helping neighborhoods grow stronger and more united.
