There’s a lot going on in Detroit. After years of decay, excitement is growing around urban gardens. Previously abandoned lots are being turned into food producing centers. In this video, we follow Greg and Olivia from Detroit Dirt and Brother Nature Produce.
They have an acre of empty-lot-land that they’ve turned into a small farm. On top of that they’re developing a compost center in the city for easy access to urban farmers to use. Enjoy and get excited!
