2018 Home Vegetable Garden
Do you and your family want to grow your own food?

Growing Hope’s Home Vegetable Garden installation program may be just what you need to get growing!
Growing Hope is a non-profit organization based in Ypsilanti, Michigan with the mission to help people improve their lives and communities through gardening and increasing access to healthy food. Growing Hope wants to understand the impact of small-space gardening on family food budgets, nutrition, and quality of life: In 2018, Growing Hope is partnering with Habitat for Humanity to install raised bed gardens at 5 new households. Together we work with household members to install 2 4ftX4ft raised beds at their homes.

What can you expect from Growing Hope from this program?
We will provide each participant household with:
• 2 wooden garden beds, each measuring 8 inches tall and 4 feet by 4 feet
• Containers (for those households that do not have a yard for raised beds).
• Soil/Compost mix to fill all the beds
• 30 vegetable or herb seedlings and 10 seed packets of your choice
• A visit to your garden from Growing Hope staff to answer garden related questions

What does Growing Hope expect from you?
• Participation in the garden installation process to the best of your physical ability
• Complete and return all surveys in a timely manner
• Have an understanding that it is your responsibility to care for your garden; we are happy to offer advice if you encounter challenges, but regular maintenance is expected
