Meet Big Green Detroit

Since 2018, Big Green has built 52 learning gardens in Metro Detroit, and we are continually adding more! In the gardens, we help kids dig into their education, thrive with real, nutritious foods and healthy habits, and become active participants in strengthening their communities. We believe that good food culture brings people together, engages students in school, and enables everyone to live healthy and productive lives.
