Growing Hope, Feeding Lives 

In Detroit, Michigan and beyond

Our History

Buckets of Rain was formed in 2006 and began by pioneering the use of gravity fed drip irrigation to help impoverished communities feed themselves in Lesotho, as well as areas of Kenya, Guatemala, Honduras, and Belize.  Since 2012, we’ve turned our attention stateside, to struggling communities of Michigan, specifically in the Detroit inner city. 

 

Why Detroit?

Urban centers like Detroit are home to thousands of struggling community members with little access to food and services, and virtually no access to fresh produce. Moreover, urban blight has infected these neighborhoods, opening the door for criminal activity on abandoned properties and inhibiting redevelopment efforts. 

Our Work

Through the construction of urban gardens on abandoned city lots, Buckets of Rain diminishes urban blight, rekindles hope in struggling neighborhoods, and feeds the community through partners like the Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries and Cass Community Social Services, two of the largest relief agencies in the United States.
