Start A Garden

If you’re thinking about starting a community garden, join us for our annual Garden Leaders Training series which will provide information and guidance on how to engage community, identify resources, set up a successful growing space and more.

This is not a gardening class—it is crucial skill training for successful community gardening projects. With attendance, there will be opportunities to network, gain new leaderships skills and apply for Garden Project start-up resources.

Topics include:

  • Developing shared vision
  • Virtual tour of successful community gardens
  • Volunteer management
  • Outreach & organizing
  • Garden leadership summit
  • Technical trade show

The next training series will take place in winter 2015, but if you would like to talk through some steps you can take now, get in touch with us, we would be happy to help! Call (517) 853-7809 or
