Detroit Free Press:
Planting is to begin in May for the Sunflowers on Woodward project, which is sponsored by the Woodward Avenue Action Association. The association is made up of local businesses and residents near Palmer Park and are dedicated to rejuvenating Woodward between McNichols and 8 Mile roads.
The group is trying to raise nearly $5,000 to plant more than 700 sunflowers.
“What we’re trying to do is create a positive image of Detroit,” said Norman Silk, a Palmer Woods resident who is one of the organizers of the project.
