ProgramsOur Urban Farm
In 2007, Growing Hope purchased a 1.4 acre property—just blocks from downtown Ypsilanti—to put down roots for its headquarters and further demonstrate our commitment to growing positive and healthy futures in Southeast Michigan communities.
With mostly volunteer labor and lots of community support, we moved in to the Growing Hope Center & Urban Garden in March 2012! Today, center renovations are complete. Programs like our year-round demonstration and training site for urban farming, sustainable gardening, and green building continue to develop. This is an exciting time. Our demonstration and training site for urban gardening and farming, our teaching kitchen, our lending libraries, and our offices are now all in one spot, accessible to the community. Our reach and impact will only grow, as we are able to help more people gain access to and grow their own healthy food.
Your support helps us continue to improve our site so that we can serve the community in even more ways!
