COVID-19

Like everyone else, Project Grow has been scrambling to adapt to the rapid changes related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 
  • Classes - Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living, where we usually hold classes, is closed. All or classes are now being taught remotely.
  • Gardens - we will be discussing the larger Coronavirus situation at the board meeting and we will keep all our gardeners informed as we develop safe gardening guidelines. We will also be working with site coordinators to work through issues specific to individual sites.

We are now accepting applications for 2020! You can apply here, and read all about how and when we process applications here.

We still have plots at the following sites:

  • Airport
  • Chapel Hill
  • County Farm Discovery. Raised beds only. County Farm A and B are full.

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!
