Ann Arbor may not be a rural
community, but Project Grow mem-
bers are making sure Ann Arbor
doesn't lose the "Arbor."
Project Grow, founded in 1971
and based in the Leslie Science
Center on Traver Rd., is a non-profit
organization that provides Ann
Arbor residents with an opportu-
nity to learn about and experience
"S hortly after I was elected in
April 1971, one of my constituents,
Susan Drake, called to ask for help
because she and some of her neigh-
bors wanted room for a victory gar-
den," said Councilmember Nelson
Meade (D-Third Ward).
A gardener for 18 years, Meade
recalls Project Grow's first years
fondly. "Susan had a lot of visions
of the role that community gardens
could have where a variety of people
- old, young, Black, white - could
get together and break down the
racial barriers that sometimes pre-
vent people from getting ac-
quainted," he said.
This year Project Grow cele-
brates its 20th anniversary. It has
implemented gardening programs in
