Description

SEEDS

Located in the heart of Downtown Durham, SEEDS is an educational community garden that promotes principles of sustainable agriculture, organic gardening, food security and environmental stewardship through garden-based programs.

Programs and Gardens at SEEDS

>>> Southside Garden <<<

Our Southside Garden serves as a beautiful urban oasis where groups and individuals connect to plants, wildlife and each other. The 2 acre sustainable urban garden is filled with flowers, fruits, vegetables, artwork, community garden plots, compost bins, cisterns and an outdoor clasroom.

>>> Durham Inner-city Gardeners (DIG) Program <<<

A year-round paid urban farming and leadership development program for teenagers, DIG empowers youth through organic gardening practices, healthy eating choices, food justice values and community involvement. DIG youth sell their produce they grow on a 1/4 acre plot of land at the Durham Farmers' Market.

>>> Children's Programs <<<

SEEDS offers highly engaging interactive programs to expose children to the wonders of the natural world. Through hands-on activities, observation and exploration of nature and ecology, our gardens serve as the classroom. Kids will learn how to grow their own food and take it into our teaching kitchen to prepare healthy and delicious meals. Parents can enroll their kids in our after-school programs, school break camps and summer day camp. Teachers can bring their class to SEEDS for a field trip, or we bring the garden to you at your school.

All programs are for 1st through 5th graders.

>>> Community Gardeners Program <<<

People and groups of all ages with any level of gardening experience in Durham can rent a garden plot at SEEDS. We share soil, tools, seeds, and organic gardening advice. The space is available for a low annual fee, so all of our neighbors can have access to gardening.

>>> Garden of Eatin' <<<

This public garden was created next to the Durham Farmers' Market as an example of a permaculture- based landscape, producing fruits, nuts, vegetables and herbs for people to pick and enjoy in a beautiful natural space.
