Sustainable Urban Farming & Organic Gardening In Detroit
Detroit has been hit hard by the economic collapse, and in many ways, the city is still recovering.
But while some cities might see that as a reason to give up, Detroit is showing us that it can be a chance to grow.
In this video, you'll see how Detroiters have responded to their current situation by coming together, supporting each other, and working towards making their communities stronger than ever.
And one of the most important ways they're doing this? Local food production.
In Detroit, 85% of residents don't have access to large grocery stores. But instead of letting that become a problem for them, they're using it as an opportunity to create community gardens and support local businesses.
This video highlights one of the pioneers in this effort: Earthworks.
