Description: Once America's most productive manufacturing city, Detroit's landscape took a turn for the worse in the mid-1960s. But in recent years, green-minded citizens began to reclaim their city with community gardens and urban farms providing two of the fastest roads to recovery. Today, over 1,300 such plots have sprouted throughout Detroit. They're providing an emotional boost to citizens, food for the hungry and instant beauty to areas while lifting spirits, enthusiasm and economic recovery for a better tomorrow.
