Day 6: Let's Grow Greatness!
Urban farming has the power to transform communities in more ways than one. Today, we want you to think about where your food comes from. Watch Devita Davison's Ted Talk and learn about how urban farming initiatives transformed Detroit communities.
Fresh food has the power to improve neighborhood health, provide jobs, and build community. The food we eat plays an important role in supporting our community, but fresh food is not always distributed equally. Many of our Chicago neighborhoods don't have fresh food or super markets for miles, these communities are called food deserts. Urban farming is one way that communities are reclaiming our food system and providing fresh and healthy food to their neighborhoods and beyond.
