We support people of all ages to grow, prepare, and eat nourishing food through hands-on educational opportunities at our urban farm and in the community. Through workshops, trainings, and field trips, we educate youth, adults, and seniors who have a range of gardening experience and skills. We are also active in school, community, and home gardens throughout Ypsilanti.

Your Dollars Empower People to Grow their Own Food
Our Farm & Garden programs provide community support for Ypsilanti area residents, schools, and community centers with the gardening knowledge to create and expand their own gardens as well as educate those around them. Home and community gardens help residents have access to more fresh vegetables, save money on groceries, and have agency over their own personal wellness goals. Please consider donating to our Farm & Garden programs to help us continue to support people of all ages to grow and prepare their own fresh food.
