Over the weekend, FYI premiered its new documentary special "Farming Detroit," which follows pioneer Detroiters who are spearheading the city's urban farming revolution. While urban farming has been called "the new hip thing" everywhere from Brooklyn to Seattle, nowhere are the stakes higher than in Detroit. With over 150,000 empty lots and an estimated 30% of locals living in poverty, determined residents are reclaiming unused land in their communities and planting seeds of growth in one of the most groundbreaking, ambitious, and surprisingly controversial grassroots movements America has ever seen.
The full documentary is available NOW on YouTube and fyi.tv.
