We encourage new and returning gardeners alike to read our Introduction for New Gardeners. This introduction provides basic information about what to expect, organic gardening, planning and upkeep. If you are new to Project Grow it also includes ideas to consider when choosing our garden site.

Project Grow provides Ann Arbor–area residents with the space, know-how, and inspiration to grow their own fresh, organic food. Gardens are located throughout the community, many near public transportation, so you can choose a site that's close to home. Project Grow identifies under-developed land, arranges for its use, and maintains it as part of our network of community gardens. We provide raised beds and programs for children, seniors, and gardeners with disabilities, so everyone can participate! Individualized programs can be created for schools, non-profit organizations and special needs gardeners.

Project Grow is a private, non-profit organization that relies on the support of our community for volunteer help, equipment donations, and funding. Please get involved, and grow with us!
