Recovery Park is a project hoping to revitalize the city of Detroit and get people working.
Gary Wozniak is the President and CEO.
He has big plans for Recovery Park involving everything from growing Tilapia, to processing foods, and establishing a 30-acre farm scattered throughout the city.
“So the models that we’re looking at are a combination of the community gardening that’s happening in Detroit, the indoor agriculture that’s being promoted by Michigan State University and then a lot of the larger indoor models in Europe, predominately in the Netherlands,” Wozniak says.
A new urban agriculture ordinance will certainly play a big in making this redevelopment project a reality.
The idea started with Self Help Addiction Rehabilitation or (SHAR), a Detroit based substance abuse treatment program.
SHAR’s mission is to transform individuals with addiction and those recovering a chance at a new life.
Wozniak has a very personal mission as well.
