Georgia Street Community Collective: An East Side Neighborhood Grows Together

The Georgia Street Community Collective garden has brought neighbors together and more importantly changed attitudes in this East Side neighborhood.

WDET 101.9 FM's Zak Rosen and Model D photographer Marvin Shaouni collaborated on this report on the grassroots garden and community collective, located at the 9300 Block of Georgia and Vinton streets between VanDyke and Gratiot.

Rosen has been reporting on Detroiters' efforts to combat the mortgage crisis and preserve their neighborhoods as part of WDET's series, "Home is More Than Our House," which airs regularly through the end of the month. You can read more on their blog.
