Vacant Building To Be Restored As Urban Farm Resource Center

Posted on Nov 30 2016 - 5:11pm by UOG

In Detroit, a three-story vacant building will now be a home to a community resource center adjacent to an urban garden which provides fresh, locally grown produce to about 2,000 homes in the area.

“The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative bought the building several years ago at auction. The restored building and cafe are expected to be unveiled in May.

The two-acre urban garden features a 200-tree fruit orchard and provides free produce to about 2,000 homes in the area. The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative says Wednesday that the project is an alternative neighborhood growth model.”
