Food Field is a new urban farm on four acres in Detroit's Durfee neighborhood, between Boston-Edison and Highland Park.
Seemed easiest to steal some of this from my farm's website, foodfielddetroit.com
Hope this works.
Since May 2011 we have harvested several thousand pounds of organic produce, built relationships with local chefs and neighbors, raised a large hoop house for year-round growing, and hired an intern and neighborhood teens. Our goal is to build a sustainable business feeding Detroit and create real alternatives to our corporate food system, while bringing jobs, resources and benefits back to our community.
