Abstract This program looks into the urban farming phenomenon in Montreal, where community gardens have been a staple for decades; in Toronto, where people have taken their crops to the skies for lack of space; and in Detroit, a city that is reclaiming space left vacant after abandoned buildings are demolished. It is in "bombed-out" locales like Detroit that urban farming really demonstrates what it can do for a city - it gives dead spaces a new lease on life, feeds hungry mouths, and creates wealth.
