Garden Project

Greater Lansing Food Bank's Garden Project provides access to land, how-to education, free seeds and plants, tool lending, a networking hub and more. This helps ensure that everyone in our community can have access to fresh, healthy food.

We support a network of more than 90 community gardens and more than 400 home gardens, serving an estimated 7,000 people. The Garden Project also manages our gleaning program, which rescues quality produce from Michigan State University and area farms to distribute through our network of agencies.
