ACCESS (Pilot Site)
ACCESS, the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services is located in Dearborn. Several of the WISEWOMAN participants were interested in the Entrepreneurial Gardening program, but they did not get started in time to be part of the 2017 program. For this year, Hiam and Ghada set up a community garden at one of the ACCESS facilities, and the women are learning how to grow in an urban setting. You can see the before and after photos of their garden below. They did a great job transforming the area into a lovely community garden.
Next year, the women will be ready to go, and we look forward to adding them to our roster of Entrepreneurial Gardeners in 2018!
