Our Story


Detroit neighborhoods have been in a downward spiral defined by expanding blight since the 1960's. John Hantz, long time Detroit resident and CEO of the Hantz Group, approached city government in 2008 with a proposal to revitalize neighborhoods using the skills and resources of Hantz Group employees to establish a large farm. The desired outcome was cleaner, safer neighborhoods, improved property values, a rekindled local economy, and improved schools.
