Earth Day

We take pride in our sustainability, initiatives, especially the ones that allow us the opportunity to partner with urban farms, community gardens & groups that are inspiring sustainable growth within their local communities.

We believe that creating productive green spaces within urban environments is one of the most impactful ways to further positive change. This includes cleaning up abandoned & vacant lots, rebuilding healthy soil, harvesting rainwater, supporting wildlife & local pollinators, planting trees or gardens & growing healthy, organic & accessible produce for local communities, often creating jobs & stimulating the local economy.

This Earth Day (4/22) we will be partnering with & raising funds for 15 different non-profit organizations doing just that. HopCat Ann Arbor is partnering with Growing Hope. 

Participating breweries will donate $1 of every pint sold to Growing Hope, in which HopCat will match, up to $300.

Also, a representative from Growing Hope will have a table set up in HopCat, to share more information about the great work that they do within our community, as well as opportunities to get involved!
