A brief description of the institution’s community garden:

The Ginsberg Center's Maize and Blue Cupboard Donation Garden started in 2007 as the Cultivating Community garden, it is one of the oldest community gardens on the University of Michigan campus, and has been a learning space for students, faculty, staff and community members to explore issues of food access, nutrition, and social justice. Products of the garden are distributed through the Maize and Blue Cupboard to help address food insecurity on campus. The garden also serves as an innovative space where students interested in agriculture and urban farming can pilot ideas, host workshops, and raise awareness in a visible location.
