There are more than 12,000 vacant lots in Flint, and Genesee county is trying to change that.
Edible Flint is a non-profit organization that helps residents turn these vacant lots into urban gardens.
The group offers classes, resources and helping hands to get new gardeners started.
This year the group will host its sixth annual Food Garden Tour.
The tour will provide transportation to 15 gardens around the city that showcase different techniques of local growers.
Deb Hamilton is with Edible Flint.
