Fireweed Universe-City is a grassroots, not-for-profit movement to transform a devastated, burned-out Detroit city neighborhood into a sustainable, eco-friendly, intentional community that will be the grounds for urban farming, residential and creative space for artists, healers, musicians, and like-minded, forward-thinking, progressive individuals, families, small businesses, and the surrounding community already in place.
We can no longer turn our backs on our own neighborhoods. All across Detroit, it’s the same story; abandoned house after abandoned house, children at high risk for street involvement and drug use, high crime and violence. We have been named “The Murder Capital of America” one too many times, and we realize that it is time to step up and do something about it, time to unite ourselves and focus on the solution, so that Detroit may rise again into the beautiful city we co-create it to be.
