Urban Agriculture Resources
South Lansing Urban Gardens (SLUG) provides resources and technical assistance for home and community gardeners. We manage food production in two 90 foot passive solar hoop houses and a 60 foot greenhouse adjacent to the Southside Community Center.  We have a children's garden program, South Side Sprouts and we offer gardening classes for adults on the Spectrum.


Yes, we love and appreciate volunteers in our gardens.  As we continue to expand and grow our program, our need for help continues to grow.  We welcome ALL SKILL LEVELS.  Never gardened? Come join us!  Experienced gardener?  Come join us!   Companies looking for community volunteer opportunities? Come join us!   Yes we like to get things done BUT we also like to have fun in our gardens with our volunteers!  We keep our schedule flexible so our volunteers can fit us comfortably into their schedules.
