At this time, the Simple Gifts Community Garden has been removed from the Miss Jeanne location on South Hughes Street and seeks a new location. Please read about us below, and reach out if you are interested in joining us in the future so we can keep you updated as our events unfold.
The Simple Gifts Garden is dedicated to the entire community. Membership costs just $15 per family, per year (Jan. 1st -Dec. 31st).
Our members work together to plan each year’s regular and special community-wide events. We sow, grow, care for, and harvest organic produce communally.
Whether your hands include one or more green thumbs, or fingers that seem to kill every plant they touch – no worries! We learn from each other, share the load, and share the bounty we grow with 5 local food pantries: St. Mary’s AME Church Food Pantry, Western Wake Crisis Minstry, The Point Food Pantry, Holly Springs Food Cupboard and Fuquay Varina Emergency Food Pantry.
Join us at any workday for a tour, introductions to other garden members and to give community gardening a try. If you want to join, we have the paperwork on site or you can download it from our forms page and bring it with you.
Saturdays 8 am to noon March until Thanksgiving
(beginning and ending earlier due to extreme weather, join the garden and receive our emails about time changes!)
Tuesdays 5-7 pm (during daylight savings time)
Thursdays – done for 2021
*Additional workdays are scheduled as needed
