Eastwood 4-H Community Garden

1504 Baker, Kalamazoo

Name: Evan Granito

The Eastwood 4-H Community Garden is a 50’x50’ garden located on the site of the old Baker Elementary School on Baker Dr, Kalamazoo Charter Township, 49048. The school that was originally there closed down in the 80’s, and the field has gone largely unused ever since. There are 8 raised beds, which are maintained by the Eastwood 4-H Community Club, and 17 other beds which are rented out by neighborhood residents. There is also a large patch of land (20’x50’) behind the garden that we recently tilled up and planted with the 3 sisters. We look forward to seeing both the garden and the 4-H programs expand in the years ahead!
