Meredith Simpson, a volunteer with Oudolf Garden Detroit has very graciously agreed to lead Wild Ones chapters, Wayne County, North Oakland, and Ann Arbor on a tour of Ouldolf Garden Detroit.

The Ouldolf Garden project started back in 2015 as new idea by the Garden Club of Michigan, in an effort to create a significant impact in the city. Garden club members Maura Campbell, Jean Hudson and Richard Thomas then sent a “love letter from Detroit” to Piet Oudolf, and he ultimately accepted the commission. Fundraising began immediately, and fast forward several years…the Belle Isle garden was designed, installed and planted by the fall of 2020. This year, 2024, will be the fourth full growing season for Oudolf Garden Detroit.

All 3 local Wild Ones Chapters are hosting this event jointly - North Oakland, Ann Arbor, & Wayne County please contact your local chapter for carpool info
