Dow Fellows Symposium 2016 - Shown here: Michael Lin and Marlena Hanlon
Condon Crow House, a Dow Distinguished Award co-winner, is establishing an urban settlement house as part of the community in a southwest Detroit neighborhood. The house remodeling process will serve as an opportunity to engage community members in developing vital home maintenance skills for successful and sustainable homeownership. In partnership with local non-profits, the site will also host ongoing sustainable life skill demonstrations and workshops on topics such as beekeeping, permaculture, vermiculture, and energy efficiency. Student project members include Marlena Hanlon, Michael Lin, Austin Martin, and Carolina Fernandez Maestri with support from faculty advisor, Joe Trumpey.
