Detroit gets fresh
"Detroit could be the nation's leading example of urban farming and become a destination for fresh, local and natural foods and become a major part of the green movement," the company said in a released statement. "Hantz Farms will transform this area into a viable, beautiful and sustainable area that will serve the community, increase the tax base, create jobs and greatly improve the quality of life in an area that has experienced a severe decline in population."
With all of the problems that the auto industry is having in Detroit right now, it’s a good time for the city to find something new to be known for. I’ve never had a desire to visit Detroit, but if the city becomes a destination for fresh, local and natural foods, I may have to check it out some day.
