The Community Garden of organic vegetables and herbs, begun in 2011, was created as a way to teach healthy gardening practices to our community while also donating fresh produce to the hungry. Children from The Franciscan School and others with their parents have shown a special knack for gardening and almost limitless energy. We revel in their participation.

We donate our produce to Plant a Row for the Hungry at Logan’s for distribution by Inter-Faith Food Shuttle to the hungry at various sites around Raleigh.

We meet to work in the garden on Saturday mornings, weather permitting. Please join us to learn about and enjoy growing organic food. Children are welcome. No gardening experience necessary. We look forward to seeing you in the garden!

We also have several garden beds available for parishioners who are willing to contribute to maintenance of the garden and donate a portion of their produce to the hungry.
