Data: 6,600 Detroit Gardens in 1932

When the Great Depression hit, Detroit’s auto industry production fell by 75% between 1929 and 1932. Many were left without work or an income to pay for food, housing, etc.

Anyone know where we might be able to find some info on where these gardens were located? Where were vacant lots turned into farms and gardens?
