Georgia Street Community Collective; Detroit’s east side

Georgia Street Community Collective is on the East side of Detroit off of Gratiot. Mark Covington turned abandon land near his east side home into a community garden. He bought an abandon building for a $1 and turned it into a community center, which hosts summer movies, super bowl viewings and Easter egg hunts. This community collective is a great example of how a turning abandon land/structures into a garden improves the surrounding community.
