Urban Farming

The BBC has a really interesting article on an urban farming project in Detroit.

A wonderful program, and something that is sorely needed in today's world. Not only does this provide fresh vegetables for poor inner-city folks who can't afford them otherwise (contributing greatly to their overall health and well-being), but it's great for cities to become more self-sufficient. Growing food to feed their people, instead of having it shipped to them over great distances from far-off places (which often means less-than-fresh produce, and a lot of gas used in its transportation) is really the way to go.

They have a website promoting the program at Check it out!
