A few years ago, famous street artist Banksy painted at the Packard Plant on the east side of Detroit a piece that said, “I Remember When All This Was Trees.”
Banksy was right. At one point, that’s what this area was before industrial production filled Detroit’s landscape, for a time, with factories and smokestacks. The area also had fertile soil that the French farmers in the early 1800s said was so good they didn’t even have to work to raise crops.
