Session Title: Not Your Mama's Farm: green infrastructure and its role in modern urban development frameworks

In this session, Tyson Gersh, Founder and CEO, will explain how MUFI began as a grass roots initiative and has grown into a full fledge organization. He'll focus on the evolving role of blue and green infrastructure as complementary land-uses for modern residential and transit-oriented development and discuss why we must pivot away from the traditional paths of urban development.

Michigan Urban Farming Initiative

The Michigan Urban Farming Initiative is a 100% volunteer-run 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Detroit's North End community. MUFI's mission is to use urban agriculture as a platform to promote education, sustainability, and community in an effort to empower urban communities, solve many social problems facing Detroit, and potentially develop a broader model for redevelopment for other urban communities.
