- To bring urban gardening to Eastpointe to promote community spirit, to beautify the city, to strengthen our reputation,
- To add value to our city and to teach our children about gardening.
- We are the Eastpointe Community Garden. Our group is made up of residents and business owners from the surrounding area who are working to expand urban gardening to the Eastpointe, MI area.
- Raised garden plots (4′ x 4′ x 6″ or 4′ x 4′ x 12″) that you can rent and plant with vegetables, herbs and/or flowers. Prices are $30.00 and $40.00 respectively, and the price includes the plot, the soil and a $10 deposit that can be returned (or rolled over to the following year) once the plot is cleaned out in the Fall.
- We are always in need of volunteers to join our weekly work parties or work independently throughout the season. Volunteers are needed for watering, weeding, planting, harvesting, garden maintenance and basic upkeep. We love to celebrate our volunteers with events throughout the season and a Harvest Dinner in the Fall.
Donate & Sponsor:
- The garden relies on rental income, sponsorships and donations to cover our expenses and provide fresh vegetables to the community – senior residences, local food banks and residents. This season we are seeking to raise funds to pay our water bills, apply for our 501c3 status, purchase materials to replace broken boxes and build trellises, soil and wood chips, plants for the giving garden, and signage throughout the garden.
