Rust Belt 2010
July 25, 2010
The Gateway Community Garden has been built and cultivated by Michigan prison inmates finishing their sentences at the Gateway halfway house on East Jefferson Avenue-a main artery in Detroit. They have created a small but vibrant inner-city garden. Using a vacant lot and recycled debris from a demolished house nearby, a dozen or more inmates are growing corn, tomatoes, peppers, watermelons, lettuce and squash.
