Ford volunteers create Renewal Garden at Piquette Square

June 10th, 2010
About a dozen Ford volunteers planted the Renewal Garden on Friday, June 4. "It is nice to get out on this beautiful morning and do something meaningful," said Tony Ockelford.

A dozen employees from Ford Motor Company planted a magnificent garden along the Piquette Square for Veterans courtyard. Ford paid for the 700 plants and shrubs and other garden features, at a cost of $5,000. 

The garden is officially called the Ford Native Michigan Perennial and Shrub Garden. It significantly enhances an already impressive courtyard at Piquette Square, which is a new 150-unit apartment project that provides long-term supportive housing for homeless veterans.

“We extend our deepest appreciation to Ford Motor Company and the Ford employees who volunteered their time, energy and enthusiasm in support of Piquette Square and the veterans here,” says Paul McNeill, property manager of the project.
