Community Gardens in Detroit

I was listening to On Being on NPR this weekend and heard an episode about a fascinating thing going on in Detroit. People in this city, suffering so much from the collapse of industry and manufacturing, are organizing to create new healthy food sources by gardening in vacant lots. I’m not sure how this relates to NYC and MK Garden, but there are some inspiring people involved, and a level of community organizing on a grass-roots level that I think is pretty amazing.
