About Community Garden Support

C60d186a 28cd 4c67 9074 8a900b246c43

The Garden Project program at the Greater Lansing Food Bank 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 more than 90 community gardens and 400 home gardens, helping to feed over 7,000 people.

We need volunteers to help with:

Seed Starter (times vary—mostly late February through April):

March 6, 2014 7:00pm
This task is filled or completed
Grow plants and donate them. The Garden Project distributes these plants to gardeners in our network through the Resource Center, which provides them the chance to grow and preserve their own fresh food. You can plant and care for seedlings at home, your workplace, a greenhouse, or a group location. Most plants need four to eight weeks to grow prior to donation. We can provide ideas on what to grow, basic tips, seeds, and other materials. This is especially easy if you already start your own plants.

Resource Center Volunteers (closed during winter months):

August 28, 2014 8:00pm
This task is filled or completed
You don’t need a green thumb to lend a hand—you can come once or twice, or become a regular volunteer to help distribute seeds, plants, and tools. This is a fun way to meet new people while serving the community. The Garden Project’s Foster Park Resource Center is located at 2401 Marcus Street, 48912 on Lansing’s eastside. Number of volunteers needed can vary.
