Urban Gardening (#111)

Sowing the Seeds of Change... planting ideas for sustainability and self-sufficiency. You might think of it as a Midwest rust belt town, but community gardeners in Flint, Michigan are undergoing a variety of projects and planting the seeds of hope for economic revitalization. From green belts to green thumbs -- a couple works with children to hone their martial arts and gardening skills; and two women toil with the local Flint government to get their garden growing.
