Garden Project

Growing Healthy Food, Cultivating Community

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 so that all community members can have access to fresh healthy food through gardening opportunities. We support a network of nearly 115 community gardens and over 500 home gardens, helping to feed more than 8,000 people across mid-Michigan. Some community gardens serve large refugee populations, others integrate school curricula, some grow for donation, and others are simply neighborhood gathering spaces to grow a stronger community. We would love to have you join us! Learn more under the tabs to the left, or contact us anytime at (517) 853-7809 or

The most current Garden Notes Newsletter is here!

Grow-A-Row: We encourage all gardeners to grow extra veggies to participate in our Grow-A-Row Initiative by donating garden-grown produce to their local pantry. Follow the link for a listing of agencies that can accept on-site donations of fresh produce, and some advice on which items are in highest demand.
