The physical creation of the space demanded a great deal of groundwork and collaboration with various entities in Detroit, including the city of Detroit, its mayor and city council, as well as volunteers, neighbors and other local businesses.

With about a half-acre of growing space, the garden serves a place for individuals to relax and enjoy greenery, while simultaneously providing organic foods to the community.

Lafayette Greens serves as a wonderful way to beautify downtown Detroit, have a space for Compuware employees to engage with the greater community and create a venue for people to share in the act of gardening in an open environment.
