The Grayling Community Garden is gearing up for its 12th season! We are planning to have plots ready to plant by June 7th (weather permitting). The garden is located at the corner of Madsen and Mary Ann Streets, made available courtesy of the Carl W. Borchers Post Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) #3736.
Personal plots are available free of charge to Crawford County Residents. Plots will vary in size depending on the amount of interest. Those interested in having a personal plot need to fill out a
registration form, see link above.
We are also seeking volunteers to help with maintaining a large plot which will grow food for the community. Food from this plot will be distributed to several local organizations to help go to individuals and families in Crawford County.
- Gardening tools are available to use at personal or community garden plots.
- New well and automatic irrigations systems installed to reduce watering strain!
- Bridge cards may be used to purchase seeds and plants for use in home gardens to produce food.
- Want to garden but have no space? Maybe you lack that “green thumb”? Garden volunteers are here to help and assist you as needed.
To sign up for a personal plot or to volunteer with the community plot, contact the Graying Community Garden at 989-348-7123.
The Grayling Community Garden is sponsored by the local VFW, the City of Grayling, District Health Department #10, the Crawford County Commission on Aging, Munson Healthcare, Michigan State University Extension, and Huron Pines.
