Detroit – also referred to as “the city in ruins,” is shrinking.  Vast areas of land have remained unused and unwanted, and no one seems to be too interested in taking over – besides nature, that is.

New projects, however, have sprung up around the prospective ghost-town.  Taking advantage of vacant space, urban farming and organic gardening began to spread within the city.  As of August 2009, there were an estimated 875 urban gardens throughout the city.

Could Detrit become a self sustaining, green city?
