Larson has examined community gardens and urban farms throughout the Midwest, with emphasis on rural enclaves and urban neighborhoods in poverty, to form the basis of his Rural and Urban Farms/farmers’ market designs. His book “A Blueprint for the Elimination of American Slums” is based on his Detroit research and suggest the use of comprehensive Urban Farms, workforce development units, distribution hubs and farmers markets to resolve some of the unemployment and derelict housing issues.
"I believe that we all have a responsibility to improve the world that we live in as we examine and look back at our lives. For myself, I have been blessed in so many ways. Since I have been blessed, my hope is that I might share my love of gardening and my desire to help others to improve the lives of those people that find themselves in these neighborhoods across the country and in Ohio.
With sound leadership where goals that are set and direction is given, clear goals can be achieved. Depressed areas such as you see in Detroit can be changed with good management and a plan to achieve these goals. I want to be a part of this sort of vision that could be copied throughout Ohio, this country, and throughout the world."
