We are no longer accepting advance orders for our May plant sale. Please still visit the sale in May! Details here.

All our sites are full.

If you are only interested in a plot at a full site, please email us at  telling us where you would like a garden. Plots sometimes open because of cancellation or because the gardener fails to begin their garden by June 1st.


Project Grow Guidelines for Gardening in the Era of Covid-19

As a gardener with Project Grow this year, you are responsible for your own safety and being aware of others gardening in your vicinity.  Project Grow gardeners represent a broad spectrum of residents both with respect to health and age.  You are expected to respect others concerns for transmission and understand that another's immune system may not be as strong as yours. 

You must be aware of ways in which you can be exposed to or could pass along Covid-19 while gardening and take appropriate precautions to protect your health and that of your fellow gardeners.


Required

  • Do not garden if you are not feeling well.  
  • Keep a minimum six-foot distance between yourself and other gardeners.
  • Cover all coughs or sneezes with a handkerchief or the inside of your elbow.
  • If others are within 6ft, protect them and yourself by wearing your face mask.
  • Whether you have been vaccinated or not, we ask that all gardeners wear a mask in the presence of others, to protect everyone involved.
     

Final notes   

These requirements apply to any small group activities like work parties which will be limited in size but are a vital component of gardening with Project Grow. It remains important despite the virus that each of you keep your gardens tended and free of weeds and debris.

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!

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!
