What a great documentary! It is so amazing to see all the footage of Detroit and the urban farms scattered among the decomposing buildings. This is a really inspiring movement.

Produced by Leila Conners (The 11th Hour) and Mathew Schmid and directed by Mark MacInnis, the film follows the urban farming phenomenon in Detroit. Urban Roots is a timely, moving and inspiring film that speaks to a nation grappling with collapsed industrial towns and the need to forge a sustainable and prosperous future.
This is amazing. My family is from Detroit originally and I’d heard that some interesting things are going on there. I love the aerial shots at the end of the video. Very inspiring.
