Program starts at 8:00pm.  Our speaker Barry Burton’s official title is Project Manager of the CIty of Detroit General Services Department. This may not sound very exciting. What he really does is making sure all work on Detroit’s green spaces, including parks, parkways, boulevards, and freeway beautification, actually happens. He will explain what is being planned and planted on public lands in Detroit. This includes new developments in Mallicone Park, massive planting of perennials and shrubs in Erma Henderson Park and over a million daffodil bulbs planted through out the city.
