Proposed project would transform Green Oak farmland into concert venue, farmer’s market

The owner of a Brighton-area skin care company hopes to transform a 17-acre property in Green Oak Township into a multi-purpose outdoor music venue and farmer’s market.

David Lawrence is the CEO and president of Joshua Tree Skin Care and recently displayed a banner along the property at US-23 and Winans Lake Road that said “Support this, or we get another strip mall…”

According to an article in, Lawrence and his partners want to develop the parcel into a space they are calling Farm Fresh MI. The intention is to place a low-key outdoor concert venue alongside a farmer’s market as well as “an agricultural processing building that would house Joshua Tree’s operations and retail space, on-site “glamping” in A-frame cabins, an event space and several greenhouses.”

The land is owned by the Legacy Center Sports Complex, which has the group under contract.

They are currently crowd-funding with a goal to raise a million dollars by March 31st. Lawrence told MLive he hopes to raise the money before bringing the plan to Green Oak Township officials for their approval. A total cost of $4.7 million is anticipated, although the project would go in phases if necessary.
