WHAT? Fireweed Universe-City is a grassroots, not-for-profit movement to transform a devastated, burned-out Detroit city neighborhood into a sustainable, eco-friendly, intentional community that will be the grounds for urban farming, residential and creative space for artists, healers, musicians, and like-minded, forward-thinking, progressive individuals, families, small businesses, and the surrounding community already in place.
WHO? Fireweed Universe-City stems out of Innate Healing Arts Center and is inspired by and for local artists, musicians, and healers, however, we are open and accepting of all people, regardless of race, gender, religion, etc. Collectively, we agree that we must have respect for each other, and, respect for our planet.
WHERE? We are working on the area just South of 7 Mile and Woodward, across from Palmer Park, in Detroit, Michigan.
WHY? We can no longer turn our backs on our own neighborhoods. All across Detroit, it’s the same story; abandoned house after abandoned house, children at high risk for street involvement and drug use, high crime and violence. We have been named “The Murder Capital of America” one too many times, and we realize that it is time to step up and do something about it, time to unite ourselves and focus on the solution, so that Detroit may rise again into the beautiful city we co-create it to be.
HOW? Fireweed Universe-City works one day at a time, coming together one by one to lift the 7&Woodward community out of poverty, into sustained abundance. We work from the heart, because we love what we are doing and we are passionate doing it. We recognize the diversity amongst us, and we each use our own unique talents, strengths and connections to create something much larger than any of us could individually.
WHEN? There’s no time like the present!
Imagine a place, completely desolate and abandoned, devastated and burnt-out. Imagine a third-world-country, post-apocalyptic-feeling neighborhood, within Detroit City Limits, waiting for the right group of people to gather together to create lasting change and a positive impact that will forever change the way we live. Imagine working together to transcend limitations and lift that broken place into a community that is sustainable, in line with the highest good of all people and all beings, and that will provide not only all of life’s basic necessities, but will encourage people to reach their fullest human potential, so that together we may grow into a life of sustained abundance, prosperity, and conscious evolution. Together we have the power to manifest dreams into reality, to create Heaven on Earth, and to live harmoniously with each other and with our planet, so that our children and our children’s children may experience a life full of Bliss, Creativity, and Fullness. Imagine that ghetto within Detroit becoming an example to the rest of the world that real change is possible, that we as human beings are capable of being sovereign, beautiful creatures that can reclaim our divinity and our birth right to Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
