Introducing... the "Help Yourself" Garden at the School of Dentistry!

This year, the School of Dentistry will be growing a vegetable garden! Join us each Wednesday and Friday to plant, weed, and harvest vegetables from around the world. Relax during lunch, meet other SoD gardeners, pick some fresh produce, and invite your patients to do the same. No gardening experience necessary.


Ongoing work days will happen on Mondays at 4pm and  Wednesdays at noon - stop by any time!


Volunteer Opportunity in Inkster!

The Princeton Street Block Club in Inkster, MI is looking for students from UM to come out and help plant their garden this Saturday, the May 31st, at 9am. The garden is located in Inkster on Michigan Ave, between John Daly and Hill streets, about a 35 minute drive from campus. This group will also be meeting every Saturday morning (contingent on the weather). This is a great opportunity to become more involved in the communities surrounding U of M!
