Our Veggie Van team, decided the space outside our 3rd Street office would make a great place for a community garden. With the go-ahead from the City of Muskegon in early June, our fearless team spent several days getting the spot ready for plants.

Throughout the summer, the garden has brought beauty and life to passersby on Third St.

Regular watering, care, weeding and love have brought a smile to many, including this man who was so excited to enjoy a cherry tomato and pick a few for his bag to take with him.

Plans are already underway for next year’s garden and dreams continue to expand. Stay tuned to see what happens next year and stop by and see the produce for yourself. Feel free to pick a tomato!
