Land Bank During the fall of 2011, the Kalamazoo County Land Bank, with the help of more than 50 volunteers, built a “Community Garden Resource Shed” at 1519 E. Michigan Avenue in Kalamazoo. The Land Bank and other Common Ground partners, are greatful to the many volunteers for their dedication to the project!
