"With the population of cities growing eponentially, cities are beginning to have to deal with the fact that they must feed and house so many people. Moving the production of foods, especially produce closer to the city is a way of aleviating this problem. Detroit is the perfect location to begin a complete exploration of strategies on how to implement farming operations within a city. The city lacks identity and because of that has not been able to recover once the automobile industry left the are. This thesis lays out a way for Detroit to find its identity while helping inform the world about urban agriculture. Through its three phase process, the city will create jobs, food, and help bring down the carbon emmisions created by our current food production line."
