Greening Detroit: Spirit of Hope Urban Farm Brings Bounty to the Motor City

A community garden in Detroit is one of hundreds bringing bounty to formerly blighted neighborhoods.

Spirit of Hope Urban Farm is on a formerly empty parcel of land next door to Spirit of Hope church. The farm works with the church’s Sunshine Community Preschool to teach kids about growing food and eating well. Before starting her seeds in early spring, Devlin asks the children who work in the garden what plants they want to grow.
