"Big glen" Garden
The "Big Glen" garden on Glendale Avenue in Highland Park is our largest garden area in Michigan, capable of serving 80,000 servings per year to homeless shelters and local residents. Corporate and small groups support this large effort by volunteering!
Local Organization Support
We never miss an opportunity to help similar organizations in food-growing efforts. We have helped HUDA Clinic, Detroit Blight-busters, Highland Park Renaissance Academy, Drew Transition Center of Detroit Public Schools, Grant Ave Community Garden, and more.
Buckets of Rain has set-up various self-serve community gardens in Highland Park and Detroit. We prepare the land, put in raised beds, utilize volunteer help to plant vegetables, set-up irrigation, whatever it takes for the community to access fresh food. Local residents can obtain produce at their convenience.
