About the Film

In “Urban Roots,” a small group of dedicated citizens has started an urban environmental movement with the potential to transform a city. With the most vacant lots in the country, Detroiters are reclaiming their spirits by growing food. A timely, moving, and inspiring film, “Urban Roots” speaks to a nation grappling with collapsed industrial towns and the need to forge a sustainable and prosperous future.


Admission is free. Please register online. You will be emailed information about how to join the screening and discussion virtually.
