Planting Day at Herkimer Apartments

Residents spent a sunny Tuesday filling community garden beds at Herkimer Apartments. Helping to guide and over see the event was Brittany, Dwelling Place's new Beautification Specialist. Residents have the opportunity to plant, care for and harvest container gardens in community spaces throughout various Dwelling Place properties. Residents shared planting techniques and anecdotes as they prepared the planting beds and carved out their plots.

New Dwelling Place Property

For the first time, Dwelling Place will be breaking ground in Muskegon Heights, Michigan. The former Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School is the site of an adaptive reuse project in which the school will be converted to a 50-unit affordable housing community. The project is set to break ground in the spring of this year and will be seeking Silver LEED Certification. The property will consist of permanent supportive housing for homeless and special needs and affordable housing. Dwelling Place is excited to branch out into a new community and further its neighborhood revitalization efforts. .
