GLFB’s Garden Project — one of the oldest community garden programs in the country —  is proud to celebrate each growing season with an annual Community Garden Tour.  Join us as we explore local gardens by bus, bike or foot — your choice! Tours will showcase the ways that gardens are improving health and nutrition, building community and creating a more vibrant Lansing. 

Garden Tour is a great chance to explore the sights, sounds, and tastes of Lansing’s gardening scene, while meeting the gardeners who make it happen.
