Growing Matters Garden

(Kalamazoo,MI)

The Growing Matters Garden program provides hands-on learning opportunities for local youth and the larger community at our urban gardens. Students put their hands in the soil and understand where their food comes from, how great it tastes right from the garden, and why growing organic is so important. The Growing Matters Garden program currently provides educational programs and maintains the Roots of Knowledge garden at Woodward Elementary School. We focus on growing vegetables (using sustainable, organic practices), but we also have areas for herbs, strawberries, and annual and native flowers. Each summer, a portion of the produce from our gardens will be sold at the People's Food Co-op 100-Mile Farmer's Market held Wednesdays, 3-7 pm May through Oct and at the Douglass Farmers' Market on Tuesdays, 3-6 pm June through September.
