This past spring break, I was an Alternative Spring Break Detroit participant. During the week, we visited various nonprofit organizations and panel discussions. We attended a panel discussion at Mariners Inn and discussed issues within the city
This year, we started our first community garden. The video you are watching documents the men harvesting our first crop, lettuce. The purpose of the garden is to give the gentlemen a healthy, therapeutic outlet while also giving them the opportunity to contribute to one of the major issues in our community, an inability to access fresh produce.
Mariners Inn serves as an anchor for those struggling to navigate the treacherous waters of homelessness and substance abuse by providing professional and compassionate residential substance abuse treatment for homeless men, and providing youth, adults, and families within our community the highest quality prevention and intervention programs.
