This is event is suited for children and adults-- featuring crafts, a gardening workshop for the little ones, and a clean-up project to help make the North End neighborhood of Detroit shine even brighter-- our 2nd clean-up this year! We encourage all parents and adults to participate!
We invite you to join us on UPDATED DATE:***Saturday, October 2nd from 12pm - 4pm to help keep the neighborhood beautiful.
We will meet at 7432 Brush Street at our farm to distribute trash bags, masks, gloves, and refreshments. If you are a returning volunteer, feel free to bring your MUFI t-shirts and any supplies you may have from the last cleanup you attended. Participants will be provided with a late lunch immediately following the clean up. Children and pets (on leashes) are welcome to participate.
We recommend volunteers wear comfortable protective clothing with long sleeves to avoid injury or insect bites. Sunscreen is also encouraged.

Thank you to our sponsor—Shryne Group, Inc.— and to our volunteers for ensuring that this community cleanup is successful. Litter and dumping are no match for a community that cares! We hope to see you there!
