DETROIT (CNS) — The sunflowers, while not blooming yet, tower over 6-year-old Ahmad Malone as he and his father, Abdul, walk through the small but lush garden outside Hope House. It won’t be long before huge bright yellow flower heads greet the sun every morning and attract bees looking for sweet nectar to take back to their hives.
Across a narrow path are a couple of rows of corn. It’s only the end of June and the stalks are more than three feet tall, nearly as high as Ahmad is tall.
Malone finds such green space in the Brightmoor neighborhood a blessing.
