Urban Roots

Urban Roots is about the spontaneous emergence of urban farms in the city of Detroit, a city devastated by the loss of half it’s population due to the collapse of manufacturing. With the most vacant lots in the country, farmers are reclaiming their spirits by growing food. Urban Roots is a story that reveals that the best in us can prevail in the most difficult of times; and in the most difficult of places, new hope emerges. This growing movement of urban farmers is changing the way people think about food—and life in the "D". It took men like Henry Ford, William Durant, and Lee Iacocca to build this city, but it’s taken a bunch of strong willed self-taught urban farmers to save it. Coming soon: www.urbanrootsamerica.com
