Eastpointe Community Garden

We share the same mission as Urban Seed

Our mission is to promote community spirit, beautify our community, provide education about gardening, donate food to the community, and support the urban agriculture movement.

Urban Seed’s Flagship Garden: The Eastpointe Community Garden

The Eastpointe Community Garden, located at 16425 Nine Mile Road in Eastpointe, Michigan, is Urban Seed’s flagship garden project. This thriving community garden offers raised garden plots measuring 4′ x 4′ x 19″ that individuals can rent to grow their own vegetables, herbs, and flowers.

Renting a plot at the Eastpointe Community Garden costs $40.00 and includes the plot itself. It provides an opportunity for community members to engage in urban farming, fostering a sense of connection with nature and promoting sustainable, locally grown produce.

The garden serves as a hub for gardeners, food enthusiasts, and volunteers who are passionate about healthy eating habits, community spirit, and equality in Eastpointe. In addition to providing a space for individuals to cultivate their own plants, the Eastpointe Community Garden also hosts events, workshops, and educational programs to promote gardening skills, environmental stewardship, and community engagement.

Volunteers play a vital role in the success of the Eastpointe Community Garden. Their dedication helps the garden grow, thrive, and make a positive impact on the local community.

To stay updated on the activities and initiatives of Urban Seed’s flagship garden, visit the official website or follow the Urban Seed – Eastpointe, MI Facebook page. The Eastpointe Community Garden continues to contribute to the growth of a strong and sustainable local food system, nurturing a healthier and more vibrant community for all.

What a magical day weve had at our beloved garden! The air was filled with laughter, the scent of fresh earth, and the spirit of community. 🌳🌼

Our very own Tim took on the role of a lumberjack today, chopping up trees and keeping the little ones engaged with a fun rock painting activity. Their vibrant creations were truly a sight to behold! 🎨

Meanwhile, the rest of us were busy as bees. We harvested from the sponsor beds, creating beautiful bouquets that added a pop of color to our free produce stand. 💐

We also got our hands dirty (in the best way possible!) by weeding and transplanting flowers into our native garden. The transformation next year will be simply stunning. 🌸

In between all the work, we took time to goof around. The garden was filled with joy as celebrated our dear Katie. Complete with quirky cat masks and delicious cupcakes from ED Bakery, it was a day to remember! 🎉🎂

And now, for some exciting news! Were on the brink of achieving our goal of donating 1,000 pounds of food. As of today, we have logged an impressive 987.40lbs. Were so close, and every little bit counts. 🍅 🥦

Weve captured all these wonderful moments on our phones, and we cant wait to share them with you. Swipe through to relive our day at the garden. 📸

Heres to many more days of joy, growth, and giving in our garden. 🌿💚

PS. You can support the project by physically helping on Saturdays or donating online at  https://UrbanSeed.info/donateImage attachmentImage attachment+Image attachment
