Urban Roots tells the story of the emergence of urban farming in Detroit, a city devastated by the loss of half its population due to the collapse of manufacturing. But now, in the empty lots and old factory yards, seeds of change are taking root. An urban environmental movement is transforming not just a city after its collapse, but also America at the end of its industrial age.
