Over the past few decades the city of Detroit has not only been going through a serious loss in population and a deterioration of their economy, but they have also suffered in the ability to produce and distribute nutrition throughout the city. Knowing the United States as a country commenced off of rural standards and how settlers arrived being dependant on nature and by taking advantage of nature’s offerings they were able to capitalize and grow. Detroit however doesn’t seem to be responding to this act of nature and thus the vegetation is at an all time high and population being affected immensely to an all time low. Detroit also suffers highly in their distribution methods when it comes to importing goods and natural foods. The city imports food produced at far distances and transported the entire way, causing inconvenience. By exploring the different methods and options of producing as well as distributing food according to the comforts of the Detroit, major developments can be made in creating grand Production and Distribution centers. Not only will it benefit the economy and create more job opportunities for those in Detroit, it will become a solution to Detroit not being able to support itself as it is supported by its surrounding cities.
