Build A Garden

The Greening of Detroit's Build-A-Garden Program (BAG) offers an opportunity for individuals, groups, schools and institutions in Detroit, Highland Park and Hamtramck to grow their own food and develop sustainable gardens by providing resources, support and information.


The program prioritizes people who have limited financial means or basic skills to develop their own garden. BAG aims to empower new growers by strengthening the Detroit food system, making healthy food accessible with the added benefit of neighborhood restoration and beautification.
