The Growing Hope Center

Welcome to the Growing Hope Center

In December 2007, Growing Hope purchased a 1.4 acre property at 922 W. Michigan Avenue in Ypsilanti—just blocks from downtown and adjacent to a public housing community—to put down roots for its headquarters and further demonstrate our commitment to growing positive and healthy futures in Southeast Michigan.

After four years, with mostly volunteer labor and lots of community support, Growing Hope staff, programs, and the organization as a whole moved in to the Growing Hope Center in March 2012! Center renovations are finally nearing completion, and the development of the Growing Hope Center will continue to grow; we envision a year-round demonstration and training site for urban farming, sustainable gardening, and green building. 

This is an exciting time for us.  Our demonstration and training site for urban gardening and farming, our teaching kitchen, our lending libraries, and our offices are now all in one spot, accessible to the community.  We're now moved in, and our reach and our impact will only grow, as we are able to help more people grow, access, and eat healthy food. But, we need your help to get us there!

Interested in a tour of our progress?  RSVP for a tour now!
