Garden Resource Program

IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TO JOIN THE GRP

For a decade, the Garden Resource Program (GRP) has supported family, community, school, and market gardens in Detroit, Highland Park, and Hamtramck. Participants in the Garden Resource Program receive resources for their vegetable gardens, including seeds and Detroit grown transplants and become part of a growing network of gardeners and advocates working to promote urban agriculture within a thriving local food system.

UPCOMING RESOURCE DISTRIBUTIONS:

GARLIC PLANTING WORKDAY AND SEED DISTRIBUTION, Tuesday, October 6th, 6-7:30PM at the Plum St. Market Garden, 2202 Third St. by the MGM Grand Casino Parking Garage Just when you think your gardening season is over…it’s time to plant garlic! Tasty, nutritious and easy to grow, garlic is planted in October for harvest in the following July. At this working lesson, participants will pitch in to plant Plum Street’s garlic patch for the season while learning how to cultivate this great crop. The garlic grown at Plum is also the source for seed we distribute to participants in the GRP, so come on down and get some garlic to grow in your garden!

PERENNIAL DISTRIBUTION AND EXCHANGETuesday, October 20th, 6-7:30PM at the Plum St. Market Garden, 2202 Third St. by the MGM Grand Casino Parking Garage Perennial flowers (the ones that come back every year!) can add beauty, pollinators and a great design element to your garden. Once established, they are fairly low maintenance and you can avoid the expense and time that it takes to plant annuals each year. This short workshop will share tips for growing and propagating perennials and we hope to have some perennials to send home with participants as well!
