Humans of Detroit

“How did you guys get into the food scene here?”

R: “When I came over to America from Australia, nobody knew what gluten free was in a lot of standard places – or when I found it, it was hard to afford. So I just started making my own while at the same time doing urban gardening. It gives us vegetables as well as beautifies the city.”

L: “I grew up in Detroit vegetarian, so a lot of my life was surrounded by my diet and just being able to go places that had options of things to eat. So growing up, we came up with a lot of recipes with alternatives to meat. I moved a few different places but when I came back here from New York I wanted to still do it and found out about the Earthworks Program. So if I can see the food from the ground to the plate, that’s what’s up! …I am able to do local catering gigs at MOCAD and such with locally grown foods.”
