We were instructed to find a site big enough for 7 small farms and enough room for the three of us to build as well. We began looking right around down town Detroit, and as we kept looking, got closer to the core of the city.
We chose this neighborhood for the site. There were only a few houses still in use, and two strips of town house complexes. There was a lot of land to use, enough that we set aside a section for people to build if more people want to move here. And there was actually farms that had been started here. You can see them in the three pictures below.
