Urban Agriculture Across America (Episode #101H)

KQED 9: Fri, Jul 6, 2012 -- 7:30 PM

From the rooftop farms of New York City to the food deserts of Detroit, join us as Food Forward explores the explosion of urban agriculture across America. Meet food rebel John Mooney, whose space-age hydroponic farm on top of a historic building in the West Village of Manhattan is a window into the future of rooftop farming. In Milwaukee, meet the biggest name in urban agriculture, Will Allen, who inspires a new generation of aquaponic innovators. We then learn of one woman's transition from hanging out to harvesting food on the streets of West Oakland.
Finally, we finish in Detroit with Travis Roberts, an eighteen-year-old who grew up watching the city struggle with increasing urban blight. In trouble and more than 100 pounds overweight, he discovered the city's urban agriculture movement and found a new purpose in life through urban chicken farming. Travis is joined by a cast of powerful characters in Detroit that are rebuilding their city, block by block. Food Forward opens the door into a new world of possibility, where pioneers and visionaries are creating viable alternatives to food systems.
