DTE Energy Garden Project blooms in Farmington Hills

DTE Energy and Gleaners Community Food Bank will add six more sites (expanding to eight) with their gardening partnership.


A DTE Energy/Gleaners Community Food Bank gardening partnership will expand to six more sites, including one in Farmington Hills.

DTE Energy and Gleaners started the program last year at substations in Auburn Hills and Plymouth Township, where more than 5,300 pounds of produce was grown with the help of volunteers from schools, community groups and religious organizations. More help will be needed this year.

“This year we’re looking to greatly increase the yield,” said Vince Dow, DTE Energy vice president, Distribution Operations. “We had an incredible response to the program last year and there is even more need for our harvests than ever before. We hope that groups and individuals will respond where we’ve expanded.”
