Theories into Stories


Have you visited Historic Barns Park?

Historic Barns Park is a 56-acre part of the Grand Traverse Commons and is being redeveloped into a one-of-a-kind regional hub for public recreation, community events, agriculture, horticulture, and environmental design. Owned by a municipal Recreational Authority, three nonprofit partners help manage the landscape and events: SEEDS, The Botanic Gardens at Historic Barns Park, and the Traverse City Community Garden

At the Park, SEEDS operates out of the old Blacksmith Shop and engages with the landscape to publicly practice small scale farming, energy education, and carbon drawdown.
