Unity in the Community
A Grass Roots Project
A garden teaches an adult or child about the delicate balance between living and surviving through a hands on
relationship with another living organism.  It teaches the child about the consequences of negligence.  A garden
provides a living laboratory where life's lessons are experienced and learned.  The forgotten lessons that a garden
provides can set the stage for new paradigms in teaching, school lunch programs, agricultural literacy, food security
outreach and community service learning as well as an understanding of the agrarian world.

Hope   +    Pray    +   Work  = Success

now that's a recipe for success!
Our partners are:

Detroit Youth Foundation
Consadine Community Center
Cass Corridor Food Co-op

The Million Man Alumni
The Shrine of the Black Madonna
Michigan Coalition of Black Farmers

We will be building a network with community, producers, researchers
and educators to develop new and innovative ways to create jobs and a
work force to build confidence and help eliminate blighted neighborhoods
thru mentoring and new educational curricula to build organizations
leadership and new youth leaders.  New businesses emerge from the people that we are empowering through our community program.   Please join
in to develop new entrepreneurial businesses.
In view of this worthy goal I have gotten the Brother Muga who has his Masters Degree in farming technology to teach me and others Farming
Technology, which will enable me to teach
organic farming and therefore lead a team of gardeners/farmers and
empower our community this spring and summer. I have some experience in gardening and would like to disseminate agricultural education and to
further organize the various organizations I am associated with to acquire funding, make a community garden and raise a new interest in farming. I
know the experience I have and the mentoring education from this new and unique experience will become another unifying factor in our community
as a whole. Some citizens want a whole village concept sociologically. Following is a survey to post in our community collective on my site.

This is Muqarrabah. My thought is:
Every division every Shrine of the Black Madonna
every NAACP SCLC every church or masjid
should have a shortwave radio for communica-tion
develop an emergency plan too.
