Rocket Volunteers Take Community Garden to New Heights!

Thanks to the 35 Rocket Community Fund volunteers who helped make improvements to an incredible community garden in the Morningside neighborhood. The garden, owned by Emerald Isles Community Development Corp., had a great start and the Rocket volunteers were able to make it even better, despite a pretty hot day of outdoor work!

Improvements to the garden that day included mulching the walkways, constructing new raised garden beds and benches, assembly of a compost bin and water catch system, and installation of a fence. All in all, these improvements will make this community garden a great place for neighbors to come together, grow, learn, connect, and thrive.

Habitat for Humanity Detroit works with amazing volunteers like these on projects under our CommUnity Impact umbrella. Many only know us for the dozens of new homes we build, but we also strive to make additional impact in the community through neighborhood revitalization projects. Like this garden project with Rocket Community Fund, we partner with local companies and organizations to spend a day improving an aspect of a neighborhood to create a better sense of community and home.

“When we are able to go beyond fixing a single house but truly impact the entire community – through new builds, rehabs, CHRs, and CommUNITY impact projects – we create better spaces for all of our neighbors,” said Mary Ellen Kearney, Director of Philanthropy for Habitat Detroit.

Thank you, Rocket Community Fund, for making Morningside a greener and happier place to live!
