Slightly further away from downtown near Thirteen Mile Road in Troy is the headquarters for the Kresge Foundation. Its green headquarters incorporate and update the historic Brook Farm with sustainable technologies and practices. Gabion walls rest easily with 19th century farm buildings and masses of naturalistic plantings. A contemporary addition has views of the entire wetland and upland prairie that has been created on site. It’s a small sustainable oasis in the midst of large suburban corporate parking lots and mowed lawns.
