Urban Agriculture and Detroit

Watch the full episode. See more Need To Know.

Here is an interesting video produced by PBS regarding Detroit's developing agricultural scene. Can urban farming help to revitalize this once booming industrial city?


  1. "If you can get the people to think about the food that they eat, you be able to get them to think about some other things that they do."

    "Is your mission to grow food or to grow community? 'I think they're one in the same'".

    Such great statements by Myrtle. Such a great video. Thanks.

  2. Myrtle is a STAR! Wouldn't it be lovely if this could be made to work? I don't know anything about Detroit and its problems, but I could live somewhere near a Myrtle.

  3. I love the videos that you post, thanks for sharing!

  4. Wonderful video- thanks for posting. I love the movement towards local produce happening in our country right now.
