Duke University currently has two community gardens. At this time, plots are not used by individual gardens. Plants are communally chosen and grown in collaboration with all volunteers. Both gardens frequently hold volunteer works sessions throughout the summer and school year.
The Honey Patch: This garden was craeted by Farmhand in collaboration with the Apiary Club. It currently has approximatly 500 square feet of growing space in the northwest corner of the Duke Gardens. Produce from the garden is enjoyed by volunteers, sold to on-campus eateries, and donated to local soup kitchens. This garden is open to the entire Duke Community. For more information on this garden, check out the Facebook page, Wiki page, and/or join the listserv (for updates on work days, etc.).
The Duke Community Garden: This garden was organized primarily by undergraduate students. It is located next to the Duke Smart Home on Faber Street. This Garden is open to all individuals. Similar to the Honey Patch, produce is distributed to volunteers, on campus eateries and local non-profit organizations. For more information, check out the garden's Facebook page, Wiki page, and/or join the listserv (for updates on work days, etc.)
