A farm of hope on Oakland Avenue

Uniquely Detroit: Oakland Avenue Urban Farm

Homeowners in the Oakland Avenue neighborhood are use to seeing closed, burned down buildings and boarded up homes in the community. So they decided to create a patch of hope.

With lots of help from the community, the Oakland Avenue Urban farm was created. They grow fresh vegetables with no chemicals. They also raise cage-free chickens.

A top seller is their homemade jam which is made in a variety of flavors.

The farm sells local, organic products at the Oakland Avenue Farmers Market during the summer. You can also visit the community house on 9227 Goodwin Street.
