GARDEN PLOT: Resource programs offer seeds, training

February 11, 2005

Gardeners in Detroit, Highland Park and Hamtramck are eligible to join the
Garden Resource Program and get seeds and seedlings for the planting season.
Members also have access to tools, tilling, compost, wood chips, training,
testing and gardening advice.

The cost for the Garden Resource Program is $10 for family gardens and $20
for community or school gardens. Last year, about 300 gardens participated.

The Garden Resource Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture
and administered through the Detroit Agriculture Network in partnership with
the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, the Greening of Detroit and the MSU Extension.
Enrollment is limited. To sign up, call Ashley Atkinson, 313-237-8736,
anytime. In
addition to providing a way for people to get inexpensive seeds and plants,
Atkinson said, the program is "an opportunity for them to become part of a
community that can help support them in whatever they're trying to do."

Another initiative of interest to those active in community gardening in
Wayne County is the new Urban Roots training program. The nine-week class will
meet on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. starting Feb. 19. The cost is $75.
Roots will meet at the American Indian Health and Family Services, 4880
Lawndale, Detroit.

Urban Roots is designed to provide information about horticulture and
community organizing. Topics will include site preparation and garden
composting, garden design, managing pests and growing vegetables, fruits and
flowers. For information, call Kristine Hahn at the MSU Extension,
by Monday.
