Good Afternoon DSG Shares Volunteers, Thank you for your involvement and commitment to past DSG Shares projects.

Now this month: Make an impact with a grass-roots community neighborhood garden! Join DSG Shares at the Georgia Street Community Garden this Saturday, August 16 from 10:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. The Georgia Street Community Garden was founded on April 8, 2008 as an opportunity to provide residents with a garden and a neighborhood gathering place. The community garden also serves as a community center where residents can bring their children for a book reading every Saturday night. Volunteers will be assisting with a lot clean-up for the formation of an orchard across the street from the existing garden. The Georgia Street Community Garden is located at 9344 Georgia Street between Gratiot and Van Dyke near the Better Made Potato Chip Factory. For more information or to volunteer, contact me at dsgshares@detroitsynergy.org. I hope to see you all this weekend! Sincerely, ReginaDSG Shares Project Lead
