Please join Duke alumni and friends at the Friendship Gardens Urban Farm for a morning of work at the urban farm that grows fresh food for Friendship Trays (Meals on Wheels)

Friendship Gardens—based in Charlotte, North Carolina—is a thriving network of community, school, faith-based, institutional, and backyard gardens as well as an urban farm. Most of our garden partnerships share their harvest for the benefit of Friendship Trays who provide over 750 meals a day to members of our community who have limited access to healthy food; and for the benefit of The Bulb who run a network of mobile markets in food-insecure neighborhoods throughout Mecklenburg County and beyond.

We will be helping with anything and everything that the garden needs, which may be planting, cleaning, moving, weeding or any other labor the garden needs. Children are welcome.
