The Field Guide to Working with Lots

The Field Guide to Working with Lots is a tool to better connect Detroit residents, businesses, and institutions to resources and to each other in order to learn, collaborate, and better practice land stewardship. This tool grew from a process that blends ideas from over 50 Detroit-based organizations with different voices and perspectives. The design team that led this project included Detroit Future City, The Work Department, Hamilton Anderson Associates, and Gyro Creative Group.
