Food Field: A Four-acre Detroit Urban Farm  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Located between Boston-Edison and Highland Park since May 2011, Food Field has harvested thousands of pounds of organic produce, built relationships with local chefs and neighbors, raised a hoop house for year-round growing, hired local teens, planted an orchard (apples, pears, cherries, plums, chestnuts, paw paws), started a flock of egg-laying chickens and ducks, and installed a 7,000-gallon aquaponics system raising catfish and blue gill. Food Field's goal is a sustainable organic farm, feeding Detroit, and creating a real alternative to the corporate food system, while bringing jobs, resources and benefits to the Detroit community.
Alex Bryan, Greater Lansing Food Bank Garden Project Program Manager AND Food Field co-owner with Noah Link will introduce you to his and Noah's unique farm.
