Back in April, members of Agency Hazon came up with an idea for a “relief garden.”

“Food pantries are low on what they’re getting,” said minister Antonio Hill, from Detroit’s Transforming Love Church. “They’re limited on what they’re getting, especially in the field of produce.”

The goal is to grow fruits and vegetables for Detroiters in need during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“This is our way of getting people to go outside, getting people involved with the earth, and for a good reason — to be able to not only support themselves with food and fresh produce, but also to support their neighbors,” Hill said.
