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

  • Do not garden if you are not feeling well
  • Cover all coughs or sneezes with a handkerchief or the inside of your elbow.
  • Follow any additional precautions decided by your site.

What We Do

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!
