RecoveryPark, an independent, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was established in 2010. Our mission is to create jobs for people with barriers to employment.
Our development strategy is to leverage the city’s underutilized assets:a large available workforce, abundant open space, access to fresh water, extensive infrastructure and a wide array of manufacturing and technology companies. We believe in creating job opportunities for Detroit’s residents and in helping returning citizens and challenged workers return to the work force.
Our first food businesses- RecoveryPark Farms was incorporated in 2012 and since then we have run successful pilot farms, selling fresh produce to many of Detroit's finest restaurants.
