CBI'S GIVING TREE FARM
Certified Organic, Lansing MI
Here at Giving Tree Farm, our mission is to provide vocational training for cognitively impaired persons within a rehabilitative environment while producing high quality produce and handmade items.
In the 1990’s a community garden was started for people with various disabilities to participate and learn in. As the garden grew, more people began volunteering and eventually a heated greenhouse was built which began a year-round horticultural therapy program. This program continues today and the garden has become a productive certified organic farm with seven acres of fields, a heated greenhouse, and eight hoop houses for year-round production.
The farm has been owned and operated by Community Based Interventions (CBI) since 2005. CBI runs a vocational training and rehabilitation program on the farm site. Monday through Friday, people who have sustained Traumatic Brain Injuries help grow fresh and organic vegetables, herbs, and flowers along with handmade items for CSA members, area restaurants, grocery stores, and a local farmers market.
At Giving Tree Farm, we seek to follow regenerative agricultural practices as we provide our community with nutritious and healthy produce.
