Just try to keep up with local musician and international vegetable grower Chris Skellenger. His nonprofit “Buckets of Rain” (previously called “11 Oaks”) teaches hungry people in Africa how to install gray water bucket irrigation systems in their parched gardens so they can eat vegetables, not just grain. Skellenger also teaches urban gardening techniques to the Guatemalan people who live in shantytowns next to the Guatemala City garbage dump. Now Buckets of Rain is creating urban gardens in Detroit. You can help Buckets of Rain continue to feed the poor in Detroit, in Latin America and in Africa. There is a fundraiser at Boonedocks in Glen Arbor on Sunday, Sept. 9 from 3-6 p.m. that will include extreme gardening demonstrations, music and lots of photos.
