Our farm is a network of three gardens located in Westland, Plymouth Township, and Farmington Hills. All produce is donated to local food pantries. Adult and youth volunteers come to work and learn in the gardens.
Detroit Food Zoo
Gleaners Detroit Food Zoo is located across the street from our main warehouse in Detroit. This garden offers opportunities for self-guided learning, group learning as well as garden volunteer experiences targeted to youth and our partner agencies. This garden demonstrates ways in which food pantries can start their own vegetable gardens and connects them to resources in order for them or their clients to get started for free or at low cost.
Youth Nutrition Workshops:
Kids benefit by learning the importance of healthy eating, having fun in the fresh air, and knowing that their garden work is feeding hungry people. Our workshops combine nutrition education and gardening. To schedule a workshop at the Detroit Food Zoo, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Livingston Victory Garden
The 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.
