Urban agriculture is growing fast across the U.S. A new collaboration is adding an exciting element of recycling to the concept. It’s happening in Detroit, where General Motors’ local Hamtramck Assembly plant is working with the city’s nonprofit Michigan Urban Farming Initiative (MUFI) to help build an occupied shipping container homestead.
