This Month's Feature Film: Detroit Urban Farming Revolution
This Month's Feature Dish: TBA

In the early 20th century the city of Detroit was a booming industrial powerhouse and world leader in car manufacturing. But since the major car companies closed their factories, more than a million taxpayers have moved out of Detroit, leaving behind more a mass of vacant land, and nearly 40,000 abandoned houses. A group of visionary residents are now sowing the seeds of an urban farming revolution.

Spice it Up! is designed to increase awareness of ethnic cuisine and encourage healthy nutritional changes essential for optimal physical and mental health.

Join Devoya Mayo & Amber Grubb every third Tuesday from 2p-4p as we view films, discuss cooking methods, invite guest speakers and share great tasting food, all with healthy adjustments in mind.
