N. Arbor – Anne Arbor Farm and Fall Garden will return at 5pm on Sunday until 5pm and give participants access to three green spaces in and around the Matte Garden.
One of the places is the campus farm in the Matai Botanical Gardens of the University of Michigan, where students grow food and learn about sustainable diets. Small groups are usually led by field students who visit closed production areas that provide access to behind-the-scenes production facilities.
Upon arrival, participants will receive registrations for small group visits. An hourly minimum is recommended for field trips.

There are two private gardens nearby, each “lovingly cared for by their owners for more than 30 years,” according to the event’s website. “Both show growing beds, sample trees and shrubs, shade paths and pollen-friendly houseplants. One was a farm in 1840 and the other was a traditional division. September brings new colors and shapes to these beautiful landscapes.
Admission is $ 10 per person and only cash or checks are accepted. All revenues support gardeners and nonprofits around Washington County.

Guests have to pay for parking at Mattai’s gardens (free for gardeners).
Face masks are strongly recommended at the event, and hand-washing is provided in each garden. Under the new UM policy, masks are required in buildings in the gardens.
