"Brother Rick Samyn, head of the Capuchin Monastery Soup Kitchen, is working with the Greening of Detroit (a non-profit group dedicated to re-foresting the city) and a southwest Detroit neighborhood to create a five-acre farm and orchard inside Romanowski Park. Students, parents, and faculty at nearby O.W. Holmes Elementary School were involved, too, holding design parties to create a framework for the farm's development."
