Incubator Farm Garden Site
In partnership with Grace Episcopal Church.
Our first big community-driven project in downtown Ishpeming. Hundreds of volunteers from the community came together to help us construct our first Incubator Farm where we keep raised beds, a hoop house, bee hives and a brand new invention - the Yoopertopia Greenhouse.
Jasperlite Intergenerational Farm
With all this success and momentum we are thrilled to share some exciting news: we received a grant from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund in 2021 and we will begin plans for a 2-acre, intergenerational farm next to Ishpeming School and the Jasperlite Senior Housing.
Inspiration Orchard Garden Site
In partnership with Ishpeming's Inspiration Zone.
The Inspiration Orchard is one of our newer projects, constructed in 2019 by hundreds of volunteers throughout the community. The orchard is located on the corner of North & York streets in Ishpeming and contains apple, plum, cherry, pear, crab apple and silver maple trees, as well as a wide variety of different berries.
Ishpeming Schools Garden Site
In partnership with Ishpeming Public Schools.
Elk's Lodge Garden Site
In partnership with the Elk's Lodge of Ishpeming.
In 2017 we formed a partnership with the Elk's Lodge in Ishpeming and they allowed us to build a new garden site on their land. In addition to our traditional raised garden beds we also decided to experiment with Hugelkultur in this space. Hugelkultur are no-dig raised beds with a difference. They hold moisture, build fertility, maximise surface volume and are great spaces for growing fruit, vegetables and herbs.
Carpet Specialists Garden Site
In partnership with Carpet Specialists of Ishpeming.
On Earth Day in 2017, Carpet Specialists allowed us to build a garden site on land adjacent to their building. Over a hundred volunteers from local businesses and the community showed up to help us on Earth Day. The old mining truck and towers behind this garden site make for a beautiful scene for cars driving into downtown Ishpeming from the highway.
