Based on the principle of
Identify : For example – a total of 10 products can be grown in that particular city over a duration of one year.
Quantify : First sell it to people locally , teach maintenance and other skills. On an average every household can grow 5 plants each of same or different products. The unused terraces, plots, parks could be converted for teaching /skill building/ maintenance /marketing of these plants.
Multiply : Number of households in Detroit @ 298,845, @ 60 % efficiency –the total yield could be
5 X 5 (fruits per plant) X60 % of 298845 =44,82,675( numbers would be the production)
10 products @ 4 lakh of each product kind.
Supply : Identify the markets and supply to common areas using common vehicle and resource sharing for transportation .
The same would allow people to interact, share, celebrate, will establish an identity and generate revenue.
