    I found your organization through a grants search and am interested in learning more about starting a branch in Detroit or surrounding community. I am an environmental engineer with 32 years experience, and am currently working with developers, local units of government and non-profits to create redevelopment and urban restoration/gardens on brownfields. Please sent me additional information on your organization and future plans in Michigan. Thanks.
