URBAN AGRICULTURE Greening Cities

Category: , Posted:13 Jan 2010 | 06:00 am

Reading a recent Fortune Magazine article about a unique model currently being looked at by Detroit, which has seen a shrinking population and resulting increase in urban land in what could be described as 'de-urbanization'.

Other targeted resources include large-scale solar panels and wind turbines to create industrial levels of alternative energy. With a population that topped over 1.8 million in 1950, the decline has now registered in with just 800,000 at the end of last year.
While sustainability in many cases has taken a back seat during the GFC (global financial crises), in Detroit the innovation is being spurring by economic survival.
