Gleaners' Gardens Volunteer Opportunities

Gleaners' gardens are dedicated to teaching nutrition through gardening, and to providing fresh, local fruits and vegetables to the hungry in our community. The Detroit Food Zoo is located across the street from our Detroit warehouse and the Livingston Victory Garden is located in Brighton. 


The Detroit Food Zoo

Gleaners Detroit Food Zoo is located across the street from our main Detroit warehouse. It shows how food pantries can start their own vegetable gardens and connects them to resources to get started at a low cost. Detroit Food Zoo offers opportunities for self-guided and group learning, as well as garden volunteer experiences targeted to youth and partner agencies. Volunteers for this garden are scheduled through the Detroit Kids Helping Kids program. Email for more info.

Groups of 10 or More >


Livingston Victory Garden

The Livingston Victory Garden is located in Brighton. It is the cornerstone of a network of gardens in Livingston County, and is supported by the Livingston Hunger Council. All of the gardens in this network donate directly to pantries in Livingston. The Victory Garden offers opportunities for education and volunteerism for both children and adults.
