Our New Garden

Our new garden will be called The Holcomb St Garden(Sapphire). It is located at the corner of Georgia St and Holcomb St, across the street from my church Christ Word Outreach Ministries.
Our sapphire garden (Georgia St is our Diamond Garden) will be more of a park setting with trees, flowers and benches. We will of course have a large selection of vegetables and we will have a composting area. This garden will be four connected vacant lot's, our biggest and most tranquil.

The Garden is Gaining Media Attention

Exciting news in the Garden! The word about the garden is spreading! Cub & I were on an Internet radio/tv show today in Detroit to talk about the garden & the GSCC's plans for the future. We were on the "Christian Guide" show with Martha Pye, which is found on The show will be available for the next 3-4 days on demand through the "Live Radio" button on the site's main page. Scroll down the page to find the "Christian Guide" show from Feb. 23.

Thanks to our friends at, we gained even more attention as someone referred us to a blogger at, who wrote an amazing article on Cub and the garden. He was also responsible for introducing Cub to a writer from TIME magazine, which is doing an article on positive things in Detroit. The spin is how artists, urban farming and such are bringing life back into the city. The reporter and photographers came out and were very impressed with what we’re doing and have done in such a short period of time. If we make the cut (which I am sure we will since they told Cub that the garden merits its own story!), it will be in this Friday’s issue. So, keep an eye out for Cub in TIME!
