A core focus of GROW Lansing is promoting equity in sustainable land use and food security, particularly addressing the needs of marginalized citizens who struggle with limited resources.

  • Department of Neighborhoods, Arts and Citizen Engagement (DNACE)
  • Greater Lansing Food Bank- Garden Project

Application Details: 

  • The final decisions will be influenced by the volume of applications received.
  • Also, we’re excited to introduce two application methods: traditional form submission and video submission.
