1. Can you tell me where this neighborhood is located in relation to the urban gardening neighborhood?

has a map at the bottom. I don't know Detroit, altho I'm educating myself about the amazing things that are happening there.

If Whole Foods is anywhere near the neighborhood of depressed Detroit which is the center of the urban gardening phenomenon, I would assume they wish to destroy that movement.
But I'm sure they can't.

Whole Foods' capitalist exploitation cannot replace the community-minded visions that have sprung out of Detroit's urban gardens. And the people doing the gardening are not just smart about gardening but smart about politics, so they will not be fooled.

But I kinda doubt that the grand Whole Foods would be going in to that neighborhood.

Can you enlighten me please?

thanks.
