Always interested in urban homesteading, I read a great article in Utne Reader online titled, Detroit Rock City: Farmer's Paradise? The article explains how the citizens of Detroit have come to depend on convenience stores, liquor stores and gas stations for food markets as big box corporations have abandoned their city. Many citizens are fed up with this nutritionally unsound arrangement and taking matters into their own hands by forging an urban farming movement! Way to go, Detroit!
