Program 1

Project Grow hosts many community gardens throughout the Ann Arbor area. The community gardens are located at various sites around Ann Arbor which are loaned to us by landowners such as the city of Ann Arbor, Washtenaw county parks, Ann Arbor public schools and private landowners. Project Grow is also home to the childrens', seniors and easy access/barrier free gardens called the Discovery gardens where we offer specialized gardening programs. Project Grow also offers organic gardening education to its members and the public with classes such as the Heirloom, Water Quality and Low Vision gardening series of classes. Project Grow also presents an Organic Gardener Certification program in conjunction with the local community college. Project Grow's newsletter and electronic bulletin also provide members and the public with upcoming events and helpful gardening tips.
