Hope Takes Root
Wabash and Temple Streets, Detroit: Hope Takes Root is one of the oldest gardens in its area. With only five current members, they have continued to maintain a vast vegetable garden and an orchard. Crops include radishes, kale, nuts and much more. People from the neighborhood are welcome to pick fruit and walk through the garden without any charge. Cathy Snygg, who helps manage the garden, says thy are always looking for volunteers to help. Each year, the Garden Resource Program takes a tour of the garden, bringing food and agriculture enthusiasts. But you can find some of Hope Takes Root's healthy goodies at the Grown in Detroit table at the Eastern Market as well. Snygg says, "It's a great garden, This time of year is not the best time, as we're getting ready for winter, but if people want to come, I'd be happy to welcome anybody." Volunteers usually work in the garden 11a.m. - 2 p.m. Sundays, depending on the weather. - YB

Herbalist Jim McDonald writes on his website herbcraft.org: "Gary Wanttaja has the best selection of dried bulk herbs anywhere around, and is probably one of the wisest plant people I know of, possessed of admirable knowledge and a singular sense of humor. Nature's Products is located in Detroit at 20020 Conant (minutes from I-75 & 8 Mile Road); give him a ring at (313) 891-3900 for current hours."
