Dossin Great Lakes Museum says
“Grown in Detroit” focuses on the urban gardening efforts managed by a public school of 300, mainly African American, pregnant and parenting teenagers. This school was one of three in the country to focus on urban gardening and this population. As part of the curriculum, students were taught agricultural skills on the school’s own farm, which was located behind the school in what used to be the playground. The young mothers, often still children themselves, learn to become knowledgeable about the importance of nutritional foods, the process by which these foods arrive at their plates, and ultimately, to become independent and self-empowered through the process of farming.

Shown at the Dossin Great Lakes Museum. Running Time: 60 minutes. Admission is FREE.
