Welcome to Common Ground Kalamazoo. We are here to support Community Gardening throughout the greater Kalamazoo area. From education, to mentoring, to tool lending . . . we can help you make your community garden the best it can be!


Take a guided tour of several community gardens in the Kalamazoo area and learn how these gardens are improving neighborhoods, building community, and encouraging healthy lifestyles in Kalamazoo. In addition to our tour guide there will be a garden member at each garden to answer specific questions.

WHEN: Thursday, July 20, 6:00 - 8:30 p.m. (arrive early the tour leaves promptly at 6:00
WHERE: Starts from Riverview Launch (1523 Riverview Dr., Kalamazoo)
OPTIONS: We are offering both a BUS option and a BIKE option. Both tours will visit about 5 gardens (but not necessarily the same gardens) and will include a tour guide. People choosing the bike tour should be comfortable with urban/city riding, but the pace will be slow and comfortable.


The tour is FREE but you must RSVP to save your spot on the tour. Contact Karma at or (269) 743-6318 and let her know how many in your party and whether you are doing the bus or bike tour.
