The green space that is feeding Detroit for free
Located at the North End of Detroit, Michigan urban farming is doing more than just helping the neighborhoods food insecure; it is breathing new life into the community. Quan Blunt, Director of Operations at The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative, told Mitch Albom , Just being in this open space with the plants, I think its very calming and therapeutic.Eighty-percent of the produce grown on the farms three acres gets distributed for free throughout the neighborhood. It is a mostly volunteer run initiative, and like most things, it too has been deeply impacted by the pandemic. The community is completely behind the farm and the team at Michigan Urban Farming is getting the job done.
