Community members in Meridian Township have adopted 5,000 square feet of open land for a community garden, a growing trend in the region.
According to excerpts from the article:
More than 5,000 square feet of land has been adopted by community members to form the Northwind Community Garden.
Garden members are growing flowers, herbs, fruits, and vegetables in individual plots and raised beds. In addition to the individual plots and beds, 200 square feet of land has been dedicated to creating a communal plot.
This past spring, there were four new gardens proposed in Meridian Township alone, and at least 80 gardens proposed or continuing for Ingham County.
The proceeds from this plot will be donated to the Greater Lansing Food Bank
, which is the parent organization for the Garden Project
— a sponsor for the Northwind Community Garden.
