The garden serves as a community meeting space, with 16 10' x 10' plots open for families to grow food for themselves and their neighbors. These community garden plots surround 8 raised beds bursting with produce to be donated directly to the Salvation Army's new food pantry and free lunch program.
If you are interested in gardening at Salvation Army Community Garden, contact Tony Tickler at Anthony_Tickler@usc.salvationarmy.org or 394-6945.

In an astounding effort to revitalize their park, the Cavanaugh Park Neighborhood Association has cleared underbrush, created walking paths, developed their own Master Plan, and is now gearing up to start a community garden.
The neighborhood wants to see the park used for positive activity. They envision a garden filled with friends talking and children playing while gardeners work to grow delicious food. This garden will serve as a neighborhood gathering place, featuring community plots, donation beds, and a large pumpkin patch.
The garden is located in Cavanaugh Park (at the end of Tenny St.) and space is filling quickly at the new garden. All community plots are 10' x 10'.
If you are interested in becoming a part of this garden, contact Toni Teachout, firstname.lastname@example.org

The Webster Farm Community Garden project in south west Lansing is a collaborative effort involving South Lansing Community Development Association, Ingham County Land Bank’s Garden Program, the Garden Project of the Greater Lansing Food Bank, community gardeners from the former Jolly Grove Garden, neighborhood residents, and many more. We are also happy to have dozens of families from refugee and immigrant populations involved in the visioning, planning, and gardening of the nearly 2 acre Webster Farm.
