Detroit Garden

Gleaners Detroit Garden is located across the street from our main warehouse in Detroit. The garden harvest is provided to our agency partners and area soup kitchens. Our nutrition education team incorporates the gardens into educational video content developed for our communities and the produce is featured in healthy recipes.

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 detkhk@gcfb.org.

Garden Livingston

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.

Volunteer Opportunities

Our gardens rely on volunteers for planting, harvesting, weeding, and end of season clean up to keep them healthy and productive. The gardens are open from April to October.
