Monday, May 12, 2014

The Hantz Group is moving forward with its plan to plant thousands of trees on Detroit’s east side this weekend.

The for-profit company has been working for several years to establish an urban agriculture site on the city’s lower east side, despite opposition at times from community activists and some city council members.

Mike Score is the president of Hantz Farms. He’s leading the entrepreneurial tree planting project. He spoke with WDET’s Jerome Vaughn.
