In a neighborhood know for its blight, seeds are being planted as college students transform not only vacant lots, but also attitudes about Detroit.
In an often forgotten corner of Brightmoor, a classroom project is taking root and hope is growing as vacant lots are transformed.
Students from the University of Michigan are partnering with Neighbors Building Brightmoor to create a magical place - replacing the sight of blight.
The space will be named Groundhog Park, for the critter that calls the plot of land home.
Even a pizza oven is being created in his honor.
Already, this project is changing attitudes and creating smiles.
