The Green Team
Turning green growth into green jobs!
creating green jobs through the green team
With the upcoming completion of our open space and green infrastructure projects, ECN has hired a small Green Team to maintain its properties. The goal is to provide employment for residents of the east side, and train them in landscaping and green infrastructure - an expanding job field in Detroit.
In an early phase now, the Green Team has employed participants from our Partnership for Economic Independence and is training them in landscaping. Our longterm goal is to expand this team, provide further trainings, and start offering support to the wider community for rain garden installations, as well as other services.
