Garden Resource Program

GROW WHERE YOU ARE. JOIN THE GARDEN RESOURCE PROGRAM!

For over 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. Once you join the GRP, we can provide you with lots of support and resources to get your garden going. Visit the Garden Resource page to learn more.

LEARN AND EARN WORKSHOPS
