"Truly, to restore the earth, we must restore ourselves. The inner and the outer worlds are inseparable. They must be harmonious." Albert Schweitzer
Detroit Abloom is proud to be a pioneer of cut flower farming in Detroit. We hope our efforts will go beyond beautifying vacant land and creating good jobs; our deepest wish is that Detroit will inspire the world by becoming a place where anyone can come for community, healing and love. We envision Detroit blooming from within as more and more people express their love for one another, and outwardly, by growing flowers (especially dahlias), until we see love and natural beauty growing everywhere. We hope you'll join us in this vision by sharing love with each other and by bringing our flowers into your life.
Both of our projects are located in the Jefferson Chalmers neighborhood on the lower east side of Detroit. Our office, hoop house and root cellar are at 313 Newport and our flower farm - Detroit Abloom - is located on the 200 block of Manistique and Ashland (use 248 Manistique for your GPS). ‘The Garden’ noted in the map below is where we grew organic vegetables for six years. However, we are vacating that property and are still moving fruit trees and crops to our Manistique location.
