The Johnson Preserve garden site is currently under development. The soil is generally very clayey and we are trying to improve it with the addition of organic matter.  There is no running water. However, for a number of years many gardeners have enjoyed gardening successfully at Johnson.

Unlike for our other garden sites, there is no registration fee or registration on the website. We are continually adding new plots and gardeners are accepted based on their experience. (Inexperienced gardeners might be given a half plot initially.) Those interested should go visit the site and then email






To visit:

Address – Just north of 4595 Platt Rd., Ann Arbor MI (south of the south entrance to Lillie Park)
