Growing Gardens

Growing Hope's Growing Garden Programs:

  • Growing Gardens Membership:  Growing Gardens membership was designed to be a simple way for you to find the community, support and resouces you need to be a successful gardener.  You can join as an individual/household or as a group (for community gardens, school gardens, et al). 

  • Garden Leadership Training: Our Garden Leadership Training prepares teams to begin or grow their garden project, by focusing on project planning, community organizing, and site planning in this two-day course.

  • Seed Starting Squad: We provide the light stand set up & education to community volunteers engage in growing seedlings at home for themselves, neighbors, and Growing Hope. 2015 Seed Starting Squad is underway!  

  • Lending Library: Individual and Group Growing Gardens Members can check out tools, small equipment, books, and curricular materials.  As they become available, from time-to-time we donate other garden materials to Group Members.

  • Home Vegetable Garden Installation Program: Since 2009 we've been engaging low-and no-income families in installing raised bed vegetable gardens in their homes and apartments while providing tracking material.  We are actively recruiting for the 2015 season! 

  • Community Gardens: Growing Hope supports community, faith, school and learning gardens throughout Ypsilanti and Washtenaw County. If your garden becomes a Growing Garden group member you'll receive gardening support, networking opportunities and discounted services through Growing Hope.
