Urban Roots follows the urban farming phenomenon in Detroit. Produced by Leila Conners (The 11th Hour) Mark MacInnis and Mathew Schmid, the film is a timely, moving and inspiring film that chronicles the hopes and dreams of Detroit's "next big idea."

Young urban farmers are reclaiming vacant land and coming back to the city to set up organic farms. This new agricultural movement is feeding Detroit -- both its appetite and sense of hope.

Urban Roots speaks to a nation grappling with collapsed industrial towns and the need to forge a sustainable and prosperous future.

Directed By Mark MacInnis / 2011 / 93 minutes
