25% of Detroit residents left the city between 2000 and 2010. @TysonGersh and his team are using the vacant apartment complexes left behind to literally regrow the city, and support its residents through urban farming.

“I think women have a really difficult time understanding how valuable they are. The idea of self-worth is very important to me because I grew up as a kid of addicts, and we were kind of set up for failure. We were set up in a hole to get out of. I ended up getting a great scholarship to go to college and a class ended up changing my entire life.
The class assignment was to design something to fill actual needs. I did my research at homeless shelters. So the first project I created was the coat. The coat looks like a regular jacket during the day, but when you open it up, you can actually slide your feet in all the way up to your knees and velcro it closed again to make a sleeping bag.
We hire only individuals from homeless shelters and then we train them in everything from sewing and manufacturing to employment as well as tech, and whatever they need to become more independent and to be proud of their accomplishments and be proud of themselves.”
