The Creative 360 Community Garden is on the grounds of Creative 360 at the corner of Bayliss St. and Arbury Place. The garden is owned by Creative 360 and managed by Gina Malczewski with help from the Midland Section of the American Chemical Society and with consultation from the Midland Master Gardeners. It is a space where people can grow their food in a way that is healthy for them, the environment, and the community and all practices are eco-friendly.

True to the spirit of Creative 360, the gardens are a place for creativity to blossom. Gardeners are encouraged to decorate their spaces within the listed guidelines and to use various techniques to maximize space. There are also shared garden beds, including a Teaching Garden for students, sponsored by local businesses and individuals, used for teaching and growing communal crops like herbs and perennials that are cared for and harvested collectively.
Gardening Education Opportunities: Community gardeners and individual gardeners wanting to expand their knowledge are invited to gather once a month for short presentations on various gardening topics followed by an open forum for discussion. These gatherings grew out of the collaborative efforts of the Midland County Master Gardener Association and Creative 360. You can register online or by calling 989-837-1885. Additionally, there are monthly activities for families and students in our Teaching garden. You can find information about all of our gardening programs on our home page either on the General Schedule or by checking out the monthly calendar.
Creative 360 is always looking for help with our Community Garden. We need volunteers for a variety of tasks including trimming, general maintenance and program assistants. We also welcome financial support of our garden programs. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer or a sponsor, or if you have any questions, please call (989) 837-1885.
