No grass too tall, no park too small!
Every other Wednesday in the srping summer and fall, The Mower Gang gets together to mow the abandoned playgrounds of Detroit. They are a crafty crew that refuses to let small budgets and bureaucracy stand in the way of a great playground. Sears donated $20,000 in mowers!
And Every May they throw down a Motown Mowdown. https://www.facebook.com/events/1182948361813409/
It's The Detroit Mower Gang's largest volunteer event. They mow and clean parks for 12 hours straight. It is a marathon of mowing. Each year they prepare a bunch of parks and playgrounds for the upcoming holiday weekend. It's a great event, and a ton of work.
They even made a 2nd life for the Detroit Dorais velodrome!
