The Detroit Future City project has issued a field guide for city residents.  Its purpose is to give ideas to Detroiters about how to re-form empty lots or back yards into spaces that can improve the city and the environment.

Dan Kinkead is the Acting Executive Director for Detroit Future City.  Erin Kelley is the DFC’s Manager of Innovative Landscape Programs.

They spoke with WDET’s Jerome Vaughn about the field guide, the landscaping tips it includes, and how they hope it helps residents improve their neighborhoods.
