Abstract:

Our group researched the effect urban farming will have on the future of Detroit. Many factors have contributed and complicated our analysis of the aforementioned issue. Initially, some factors we identified are effects of urban farming on property values, income generation, crime rates, health, and sustainability. Additionally, we researched a new method of urban farming known as vertical farming. For the purposes of our study, vertical farming is urban farming within high-rise structures. Also, urban farming will be defined as the process of growing, maintaining, and selling agricultural products within a large city.
