John Krohn, Garden Program Manager
John manages the Land Bank Garden Program, which provides technical assistance to empower urban residents to manage vacant lots as household or community gardens, urban farms, or enhanced green space. The Garden Program, with the help of a team of AmeriCorps members and volunteers from the community, is able to eliminate most of our maintenance obligations at many of our vacant parcels, turning those liabilities into assets for our community. As a Lansing resident, John sees the Land Bank’s work as vital to supporting neighborhoods hard hit by the foreclosure crisis, transforming problems into opportunities to create healthier, vibrant, and inspiring spaces for people to live and work.
John is proud of the Land Bank’s community food assets, which include a u-pick raspberry patch, a u-pick sweet corn patch, and an orchard. John looks forward to helping provide Lansing’s urban core with some of the same opportunities for active outdoor recreation, food security, and natural beauty that rural and suburban residents enjoy."
