Foster Community Garden

Location: 2325 Marcus St., Lansing, MI 48912
Public Garden Donation Garden Grow-Your-Own Garden Youth Garden

Plots available to the general public. 

Established in 1990, with easy access to Garden Project’s Resource Center, this garden offers tilled or untilled plots for anyone to grow their own food. New gardeners are paired up with a long-term gardener to help answer questions and provide mentorship if needed. Garden plots are around 13’x25′ for new gardeners or 13’x50′ for returning, though accommodations can be made on a case by case basis.

There are water tanks for bucket filling and a community tool shed on site. Gardeners at Foster commit to keeping their plots well maintained and harvested in a timely manner, and to participate in helping care for the overall community garden by volunteering in some capacity during the garden season.
