Video: Turning an Empty Detroit Lot into a Farm

There's a lot going on in Detroit. After years of decay, excitement is growing around urban gardens. Previously abandoned lots are being turned into food producing centers. In this video, we follow Greg and Olivia from Detroit Dirt and Brother Nature Produce. They have an acre of empty lot land that they've turned into a small farm.

On top of that, they're developing a compost center in the city for easy access to urban farmers to use. To create this episode we partnered with Food52 who helped coordinate volunteers for the day. Watch the video here and to read more, check out Food52's account of the events.
