MCC Gardening AssociationThe purpose of the Mott Community College Gardening Association (MCCGA) is to educate students and the community on basic horticultural practices and their benefits through lectures, volunteer projects, and gardening-related activities in and around the MCC campuses, as well as in our community. We began installation of a native-plant garden in spring, 2005, which will demonstrate and help us to share the benefits of rebuilding native-plant habitats. We’ve established the Campus Beautification Endowment fund to support MCC campus gardens and the educational benefits they afford our students. Tax-deductible donations may be made payable to the Foundation for Mott Community College (501(c)3) and mailed to the address above.

The Bridge-Between Retreat CenterThe Bridge-Between Retreat Center, established in 1987, is nestled in the countryside on a 100-year-old working farm. The Bridge’s mission is to provide a contemplative place in which to deepen relationships with God, self, neighbor, and Creation. We serve both soul and soil, recognizing the sacredness in all of life from the microorganisms in the organic garden to the farm animals and wild critters. We strive to honor Earth in all that we do, building a vision for a sustainable future. The center offers over-night retreats for groups and individuals (self-directed or guided) spiritual direction, workshops, special events, and off-site speaking engagements. All are welcome at The Bridge – whatever your spiritual beliefs may be. Come, enjoy the farmstead, join in a family-style meal, learn, relax, pause, and appreciate all of Creation’s sacredness. Volunteer opportunities abound.
