The Mission of Detroit Dirt | Pashon Murray | TEDxDetroit What if we started a compost company that worked to turn forgotten parcels of land in Detroit into urban farms that not only fed, but revitalized our community?

In 2010 Pashon co-founded Detroit Dirt, a local composting and biomass collection company. Detroit Dirt specializes in providing compost/biomass solutions for the Metro Detroit community. Pashon is featured in the now famous You Tube Ford commercial, Upside: Anything is Possible. She is a sought after public speaker and a Fellow at the MIT Media Lab.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
