Video: Urban Farming in Detroit

May 25, 2010

A lot is happening in Detroit. When Mark Dowie wrote his “proposal”:https://www.guernicamag.com/features/1182/food_among_the_ruins/ in _Guernica_ for turning the vast vacated areas of Detroit into urban farms, Detroit Mayor Dave Bing was less enthused than his predecessor. Slowly it seems Mayor Bing has been coming around. See the video below.

Dowie’s piece also seemed like a smart extension of his book, “Conservation Refugees”:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0262012618?ie=UTF8&tag=gueamagofarta-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0262012618, which you can read excerpts of “here”:https://www.guernicamag.com/features/1004/human_nature/ and “here.”:https://www.guernicamag.com/features/556/post_1/
