Community Description

Interest has been growing. There is a Facebook group with the same name.
We seek to acquire abandoned property in Detroit.
The next auction is in a couple weeks. $500 for a house, or a lot. Also considering land in NY state, and a small piece has been acquired in Florida.

Planting could start in Florida at any time. The property is hard to get to though. Need space in other places.
