Three urban farming stories and a funeral

The first story appears on the Detroit News' YouTube channel.

Future urban farm.

Volunteers from Motor City Blight Busters, Starbucks and Teach for America deconstruct houses in Detroit to expand the urban garden in the Old Reford Township area in Detroit.
That was yesterday. Last week's Detroit Free Press included these two articles, which sparked quite a discussion on my Facebook page. I might get around to summarizing it in a future post.

Michigan State proposes 100-acre, $100-million urban-farming research center in Detroit

With their city shrinking, many Detroiters use empty lots to grow gardens

Finally, the funeral. In memory of Dick Clark, I present Barry Manilow performing "Bandstand Boogie."

So long, World's Oldest Teenager. New Years Eve will not be the same without you.
