YpsiPlanti is Popping Up Soon, With Help from YOU!

YpsiPlanti garden supply store will be popping up at 9 South Adams St. this May, but we still have some work to do do get everything ready to go.

In the next week, we need volunteers willing to paint, clean, build shelving, & lift some heavy things. If you have the time, you can help make YpsiPlanti a reality!

A schedule of times for volunteering can be found on our calendar. If you want to attend one of our volunteer days at YpsiPlanti, please contact our Social Enterprise VISTA, Leah McKnight at

Let's turn this:

Into the best garden supply store that downtown Ypsilanti has ever seen!

Thanks for Helping Us Grow!
