Our conversation with them highlights one of their projects, a community-supported greenhouse in Southwest Detroit. This greenhouse celebrates the surrounding neighborhood and was built as a learning platform for SW Detroit schools and neighborhood children, to increase food access, and built hand-in-hand with the amazing community residents. CultureVerse worked with Graft Living to create an immersive 3D experience to help teach the world about their amazing work. Explore the immersive experience here.
