Farming in Detroit?

Apparently people are using land in Detroit to farm and grow food (via Fark). I think this is a great use of land in the city, and since there are cattle drives anyway, why not go for it? Detroit is the only city in America that has had it’s population drop from > 1 million people to < 1 million. That means there’s a lot of unused property in the city, and something like this can only be beneficial. Of course, the urban planning students might have more insight on this than me…

  1. I live in Detroit and am a small member of the redevelopment community and a member of the small tech community. Detroit needs all of the smart, hard working, altruistic, nice people it can get. I’ll answer questions if you want to do something cool in Detroit.
