Garden Tour

Garden Project has a long tradition of celebrating the growing season with our annual community Garden Tour event. The event consists of three separate tours that occur simultaneously, allowing participants to choose how they travel to the gardens: either by bus, bike or foot. Each tour showcases how gardens improve health and nutrition, build community and create a more vibrant Lansing.  

Plan to join us next year to explore the diversity of Lansing’s gardening scene and meet the gardeners who make it happen.
