Urban farming in Detroit: post industrial urban development
Take a free lesson on post-insdustrial urban development and watch how urban farming can revitalize the communities and the urban space left by processes of de-industrialization. The local production of food improves the local environment, knits the communities, enhances their identification with their place and finally provides an alternative to the industrial produced food. Quite inspiring!
In his documentary, Food Machine, Yul Kwon’s also registered the development of urban farming in Detroit. He shows the dramatic urban and demographic changes that the process of de-industrialization brought to the city.
If you want to understand the global impact of such local efforts, you can watch the whole documentary on the internet site of PBS.
