MCCG works to grow a healthy, self-sufficient and strong community-of-gardens by helping to establish and support community gardens throughout Manistee County.
MCCG accomplishes this vision by:
- Supporting a network of community gardeners through the development of a best practices toolkit as well as a network of experienced volunteers.
- Educating and empowering participants to use gardening as a vehicle to build community by hosting regular workshops and events.
- Maintaining the Sophia Street Community Garden as a model of best practices in community gardening for the region.
- Improving participants’ health through education and increased exposure to whole foods.
