Dirt and Vegetables in Detroit

This video follows Greg Willerer of Detroit Dirt and Brother Nature Produce in Detroit who is trying to help build a viable food system in Detroit. As part of those efforts he’s trying to create a local compost network (he’s involved breweries, coffee houses and even the Detroit Zoo — all of whom give the project their waste).


Build A $30 Bike Trailer

Alan Languirand who lives in Detroit, demonstrates his $30 bike trailer. He made it with steel electrical conduit, hose couplers and bicycle wheels. This is a big achievement because commercial bike trailers similar to this one can cost upwards of $100 in a store. Where I live, the starting price is around $200.
