016: Loveland

LOVELAND is a community investment program in which partners are invited to purchase square inches of land in Detroit for $1 each. These inch-vestments are compiled together into "microhoods" which are developed into visible park and garden spaces around the city. The LOVELAND team, comprised of Jerry Paffendorf, Mary Lorene Carter, and Larry Sheradon, have developed an unique fundraising framework which engages the community and increases the property's economic value and perhaps more importantly its economic value.

The following video is from the TEDxDetroit conference and outlines all the amazing work Team LOVELAND is doing:
