Marc Peeples

Mr. Peeples was born and raised in Detroit, MI. He watched as the houses he grew up in were boarded up and condemned. He took the initiative to create something out of the destruction he saw and turn the abandoned lot in his older neighborhood, into a community garden known as Liberated Farms. He is known for the Gardening While Black incident of 2019.

Update: Marc is currently reestablishing Liberated Farms and working on STEAM programs for kids in the greater Detroit area. For more information see Liberated Farms
