Motor City Blight Busters is a Detroit non-profit dedicated to the stabilization and revitalization of our Detroit neighborhoods. Since 1988 they have been a positive catalyst in Detroit to neighborhoods, families, and volunteers by tearing down blighted abandon homes, cleaning up dump sites, painting existing houses, cleaning up neighborhoods, building new houses, founding Angel’s night, and many other positive activities. Part of the 2012 plan for Blight Busters is the deconstruction and urban farming project located on Santa Clara Street.
Santa Clara Street has seven vacant and dilapidated houses that all sit next to each other and have been abandoned for some time. It has been determined that these houses should not be renovated, but with the help of the community they can be deconstructed to salvage material and make way for an urban farm.
April 10th our team of volunteers will be responsible for the complete deconstruction of one of the Santa Clara homes. Please come prepared for outdoor work: appropriate clothes (community t-shirts will be available if needed) & closed toe shoes. Lunch will be served for volunteers prior to the start of the project. Limited parking is available - please carpool if possible.
