AfterHouse: Fighting Blight by Growing a Greenhouse

Fire and blight have left more than a few holes in metro Detroit's neighborhoods. AfterHouse has an idea for a temporary solution: below-ground greenhouses. The organization, inspired by South American farmers who build subterranean 'walipinis' to grow crops year-round, is using a burnt-out house in Detroit as its prototype.

FilterD: October 18 - 24

The Hamtramck Neighborhood Arts Festival features bands on porches, a studio crawl and a chance to navigate the streets of arguably Michigan's most walkable city on foot. Get all the details inside FilterD.
