Description:
The Giving Garden is a volunteer project of the Master Gardeners of Kalamazoo County, Michigan, sponsored by Michigan State University Extension. The central mission of the project is to provide fresh vegetables to the under-served and those in need in the Kalamazoo area. All of the food grown is donated to Kalamazoo Loaves & Fishes and Ministry with Community. The Giving Garden is located at 5070 East N Avenue, the southeast corner of Sprinkle and Kilgore Road (N Avenue), on land owned by Humphrey Products and Kendall Electric who generously allow the Master Gardeners to grow vegetables on it.

• Monday 9:00 AM – Noon
