Food and Empowerment
 

37 different crops are growing on a 2-acre farm within Rouge Park, Detroit.

A coalition group called the Detroit Black Community Food Security Network
 is hard at work both growing the food- and planting the seeds for social change.

Quote
"We're not interested in plans where the corporate sector comes in and uses the majority of the population as workers. We're concerned about control and ownership. We want to model not only the growing techniques but model the kind of social and political economic dynamic that we think are appropriate for a city like Detroit"  says Malik Yakini, chairman of the network.

 In this video, he gives a tour of D-Town Farm, one of Detroit's biggest urban farms. The mission: to offer fresh produce, and build food security in Detroit's black community.
