Public Garden Grow-Your-Own Garden
There is an additional $5 per plot water fee for each plot at Armory Garden

Plots available to the general public.

Established in 2005, Armory is a large, very popular garden with easy access to plots and water on Lansing’s eastside. There is shade palapa, a native plant bed and a tool shed with a seed-starting annex on premise.

Armory Garden is a public, NO-TRACTOR TILL garden, where individuals register for plots and are responsible to plant, water, weed and harvest their produce. The plot fee set by the Garden Project allows gardeners to pay according to an income scale. There is an additional $5 water fee per plot. Both of these fees are collected by Garden Project personnel. When a major repair or change to the infrastructure needs to be done, the garden is able to apply for funds from the Garden Project. For example, this enabled the installation of a new metal roof on the shed in 2017, and gardeners provided the labor.


  • Number of plots: 58, each approximately 20' x 20'
