Grand Opening: Visit the New Urbanwood Marketplace in Flint!
May 31, 2012
Join us for the Grand Opening of Flint’s Urbanwood Marketplace!
Where do trees go when they are removed from streets or backyards? Can you do anything with a tree killed by the emerald ash borer? How can a sawmill operate in the middle of a city? Why is choosing local and sustainable products important?
Find answers to these questions and more by visiting the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity ReStore on Saturday, June 2nd, for the Grand Opening of Flint’s Urbanwood Marketplace! Don't miss your chance to learn more about how the Genesee Conservation District is recycling Flint’s dead and dying neighborhood trees into beautiful and sustainable products. They and other members of the Urbanwood Project are working to make the best use of trees removed in southeastern Michigan’s communities. Come meet Urbanwood's expert sawyers and arborists, see sawmill demonstrations, and enjoy fun for the whole family.
When: Saturday, June 2nd – 10:00am – 2:00pm
Where: Genesee County Habitat for Humanity ReStore 101 Burton St., Flint (next to the Flint Farmers’ Market)

The Urbanwood Project is coordinated by Recycle Ann Arbor and is a cooperative partnership with the Genesee County Habitat for Humanity, Habitat for Humanity Haslett ReStore, and local Urbanwood producers. This program was initially coordinated by the Southeast Michigan Resource Conservation and Development Council and received early financial support through grants from USDA Forest Service Wood Education and Resource Center.
