Buckets of Rain was formed in 2007 and has practiced survival horticulture in Africa, Central America and now, predominantly Detroit/Highland Park. One of our goals is to grow vegetables under conditions not thought possible; for people whose lives are negatively impacted by lack of access. In 2012 we redirected 95% of our assets and energies to Detroit/Highland Park in areas we deemed in greater need than anything we'd previously seen abroad. We have re-purposed about 2 acres of abandoned city land into the production of 100,000 servings per year. We support the Detroit Rescue Mission, Cass Community Social Services and others in Detroit, as well as taking food to the Empire Food Pantry and the Goodwill Inn locally. We benefit from 5000 volunteer hours annually, planting, harvesting, and distributing fresh vegetables for free. We also created an inner city program called "Clinic to Farm to Table" where we work with free health clinics to provide patients (that suffer from diet related health issues) a steady and reliable source of free, healthy food.
