Landscape Architecture Professor Bob Grese

The Garden Club of America (GCA) has awarded Bob Grese with an honorary membership. The GCA is the first national federation of American garden clubs, with 200 member clubs and over 18,000 members across the country. Established in 1913, GCA has long championed the conservation and study of our nation’s rich heritage of designed landscapes and gardens. Generations before these needs became evident to most citizens, the GCA spearheaded many pioneering efforts to document and steward significant heritage sites—and create endowments to allow their continuity and study.

But Detroit’s water department and Land Bank Authority as well as the University of Michigan turned four vacant city lots into gardens designed to corral storm water.

Officials with the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department, the city’s Land Bank Authority, UM and community groups held a celebration Wednesday for the pilot project’s completion. The event was held at one of the lots, located on Evergreen between Joy and Tireman.
