Who and What are We?
The Grandmont Rosedale Community Garden was established in 2009 by residents – and nearby friends - of the Grandmont and Rosedale neighborhoods in northwest Detroit. Start up costs for raised beds, fencing, tool etc. were provided by a grants funds that were received by the Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation. Additional grants and donations for infrastructure improvements have been received as well. Over the years, a variety of volunteers (Detroit Project Day and others) have assisted with projects including replacing/ adding raised beds and fencing.
Anyone who is interested and able to contribute to the work of maintaining the garden is invited to “join” us; There is no formal membership, no gardening experience is necessary.
This is a collaborative, community effort. Everyone shares in the work and everyone benefits from the harvest.
