Founder of Willow Run Acres
T.C. Collins started gardening and farming at 2-3 years old with his great great grandparents. As a descendant of former slaves, the legacy of farming and gardening has been preserved in his family along with other often lost traditions.
His Southern roots gave him an appreciation for green space and he has been living "organically" since before it was popular.
TC manages Many gardens and farms through out Michigan and Ohio.
He also reached over 2,500 students pre covid-19 with his classes, workshops, volunteerism and community engagement through gardening and farming every year.
