Fort Street Community News
THE DIG PROGRAM
A collaborative partnership called DIG, Detroiters in the Garden, between The Greening of Detroit and Fort Street’s Open Door Ministry, promotes healthy living for both body and spirit. Free weekly classes at the beautiful Lafayette Greens Garden, downtown, highlight healthy food choices, smart shopping on a fixed budget, wholesome cooking, movement and mindfulness. Classes are facilitated by a health and wellness educator.
The workshops are open to the public, but most of the participants are seniors who live in low-income housing near the garden. Last week, we gathered at Fort Street to prep and cook a meal. A fabulous lunch was shared by all. One of the most valuable aspects of the program is the sense of community.
The Healthy Habits series is hosted on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. at Lafayette Greens Garden. You are welcome to join us! The DIG Program is funded by a grant through First Presbyterian Church of Ann Arbor.
