5th Annual Seeds, Snacks and Six Packa @ Repair the World Detroit
Mar 14 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Get packing with NEXTGen Detroit and Repair The World Detroit as we engage in our 5th annual seed packing event for Keep Growing Detroit. Bring your friends for a fun night of doing good, learning and meeting new people while savoring some craft beer (of course we will rep some Detroit brews)!

For our 5th year of seed packing, we’re adding a special twist: Sporcle Live will be hosting trivia games throughout the night! Test your knowledge and get the chance to win prizes, all on this awesome night of service and fun.

Keep Growing Detroit provides farmers, community and family gardens within the City of Detroit with seeds and seedlings to help promote food sovereignty.

This is a FREE event, but we do need folks to register right here: https://jewishdetroit.org/event/seeds-snacks-and-six-packs/
