Today's garden is tomorrow's food!
Residential Gardens installed to-date:
Our residential garden program was created in 2016 as part of our mission to increase the access that local Metro Detroit residents have to fresh organically grown produce. Through this program, participants are educated on how to start and manage their very own garden in their backyard. Each raised garden bed is installed with care by our Peace Tree Parks staff to get you started on your gardening journey.
Our residential garden program operates as a co-op with participants. Though garden beds are installed at no cost to participants, each participant is encouraged to donate in order to support funding for resources.
Sign-up and let us bring organic gardening to your backyard!
Now offering resources through our KGD partnership for residential garden recipients!
Beginning in 2022, we are partnering with Keep Growing Detroit to provide ongoing resources to our residential garden recipients! Beginning this gardening season, all 2022 residential garden recipients will receive a FREE membership to KDG's Garden Resource program.
If you are a recipient that has participated in our residential program in the past, you now have access to become a part of KGD's "Partner in Food Sovereignty" for FREE, this give you access to classes, etc.
For more information about both programs, click here.
If you are a current or past recipient interested in either program, please contact us for instructions on how to enroll.
Due to an overwhelming response and limited resources, our residential garden application for 2022 is now closed.
You are still welcome to submit an application, your application will be placed on the list for the 2023 season.
All applications received after the closing of our 2022 application will automatically be added to the 2023 recipient list.
