Our 2013 Chefs in the Garden series got off to an amazing start at our August dinner! But you can still join us at two more dinners this season, on the following Sunday afternoons (click on the dates for details and to buy your tickets now): September 22 and October 20. Then check back for more information!
Would you like to be on our host committee for one of these dinners? As a host, you help to develop a guest list and spread the word about the event to your friends & colleagues. You'll purchase your own ticket and recruit 5 others to also purchase tickets and join you at the event. Once there, your job is to just enjoy the event and make your guests and others feel welcome. We'll include your name on the host committee list in our outreach efforts. Contact us to let us know!
On Friday, September 6 from 1-7pm, we'll be holding our Fall Plant Sale! Stop by to shop our selection of cool season seedlings - including kale, cabbage, and much more - as well as our full line of garden products and services. Be sure to pick up your raised bed kits for 40% off, as well as season extension kits, soil and compost, and more. Plus, pre-order your rain barrel up until Friday, August 30 and we'll have it ready for you to pick up!
We're proud to offer a wide variety of workshops on topics relating to gardening and cooking/nutrition, suitable for those with varying degrees of experience. It's always best to RSVP for a class you plan to attend so that we can prepare necessary materials and get in touch with you about it if needed.

We would love for you to host a party - as informal or formal as you are, letting your friends know you're hosting a benefit, and simply ask your friends to pay what they would for an evening out on the town. Sound like fun? Click here to read more and sign up!

Community Potluck Each month, we host a Community Potluck dinner to cultivate an inter-connected local community with food and gardening as the centerpiece. These Potlucks encourage conversation and action revolving around sustainable communities, urban farming, and healthy food access. All are invited to share in a meal and discussion with friends and neighbors! In 2013 we're continuing our partnership with the Ypsilanti Food Co-op and the Ypsilanti Public Library for a Sustainability Film Series that occurs after each potluck. Check our calendar for upcoming dates and film titles-- currently, potlucks are the 2nd Friday evening of the month at the downtown Michigan Ave branch of the library. The locations and dates change seasonally, so always check our calendar before coming out!
