The RecoveryPark community of businesses shares a common roadmap, a common vision, a common set of guiding principles. Our actions are deliberate. We filter all our decisions through the following set of values:
Technology spans the centuries. It can be something from our past or something yet to be invented. Quality, service and taste will determine the appropriate use of technology. You cannot mechanize the human touch.
Small, Nimble and Close
Decision making will be close to the customer and even closer to the community. Organizational capacity and collaborative relationships are designed to allow us to respond quickly and effectively to unique opportunities as they present themselves.
Local, Live and Fresh
Recovery is to get back something that once existed. Bedrock for RecoveryPark is a vibrant community with food at its core. Natural growing within a 60 mile radius and availability within 48 hours of harvest, processing or packaging is vital to our success.
We are Detroiters who want to revitalize our city. We do this by providing meaningful work, dignified employment and collective ownership to create true prosperity, economic security and partnership in our larger community.
Earth is our home. We push ourselves to go beyond basic compliance on environmental issues. Creating and maintaining a healthy environment for future generations to enjoy is serious business.
A Different Type of Finance
Profits are the lifeblood of any business. This insures the long-term economic health of our community of businesses and our local community. All of our business models are designed to be self-sustaining for lasting community impact.
Knowledge is power. It must be shared. It is imperative that we promote open access to all the aspirations and ideas that live within our community. Everyone will be able to tap each other’s deepest creative potential.
