Old Oakland Community Garden

Location: 1001 Stanley St., Lansing, MI 48915
Public Garden Grow-Your-Own Garden

The Old Oakland Community Garden was established in 2012 in Dunnebacke Park on Lansing’s west side. The garden was established to provide a welcoming space for residents of the Old Oakland Neighborhood, a place to garden, for local children to learn, neighbors to gather and socialize, and for the community to grow. The garden currently has 20-10’x10’ plots with 2-3’x6’ raised beds in each plot. Half plots are also available. In addition, all garden members work to maintain a larger community planting area, a perennial ground planting area, and smaller kids and herb planting areas. Priority membership is granted to members of the Old Oakland Neighborhood, but extra plots are potentially available to those who reside outside of the neighborhood. The garden is guided by a simple philosophy: “Grow & Share, Eat & Live, Learn & Laugh, and Enjoy!”
