We transform Detroit vacant lots into urban bee farms for the community. We focus on a three part mission: (1) Eliminating blight in the City of Detroit by repurposing vacant lots. (2) Preserve the conservation of Honey Bees. (3) Provide tours and bee education for the community.

“I am always looking for ways to promote Campbellford and community spirit so it started there . . . and we have a pallet factory here and people are into reduce, reuse, recycle, and upcycle so we thought we could form a festival around pallets . . . so that became Pallets on the Town,” said Joan Sheppard, who is organizing the project and inspiring others to get involved.
