Located in Mid West Detroit, the project led by Trish Woods & Shaina Baira, is transforming a longtime empty lot in Trish's hometown neighborhood into an outdoor performance & community gathering space within a small fruit  orchard and garden life supporting biodiversity, community and the journey towards sustainability. This project takes place on land that has not been cultivated in the past 20+ years, now serving as fertile ground and symbolic potential for a new hope and excitement to bring people together through agriculture and the movement arts.
