County Farm Park Discovery Garden

The County Farm Discovery Garden is right next to the farm-themed playground at Washtenaw County Farm Park.

The gardens open in late April or early May depending on weather. They close for the winter on the third Saturday of October.   All Discovery Garden gardeners receive an 18 or 24 square foot raised bed. Gardeners have on-site access to a community tool shed and water. The County Farm Park pavilion, with drinking fountain, bathrooms and picnic tables is nearby.  

Volunteers are available to provide assistance and site coordinators help keep gardens watered throughout the week.

The gardens are well suited for low-vision or no-vision gardeners. Instructional help and guidance is available for the visually impaired gardener upon request.
