Community Garden

An invite from Stokes County Cooperative Extension...
Learn about how your church, school, or other community organization can participate in and benefit from a Community Garden.

You are invited to a luncheon meeting on Tuesday, February 26th, 2012, at 11:30 a.m., at the Agriculture Building (old Wentworth School). Learn best-practices from 2012 Community Gardeners, interact with experienced panelists, meet with Community Garden Coordinator Deborah Crumpton, and plan for your 2013 garden; and learn more about this year’s extra emphasis on school gardens and harvest distribution. We will also have a wonderful local food lunch with food from !

Community Gardens can help build healthy, local economies, fit bodies, and connected communities. The communities that start gardens can vary. They might include faith communities that donate produce to charities, school gardens that teach science and nutrition with hands-on learning, youth gardens that teach teamwork and entrepreneurial skills, or any other organization that is looking for a worthwhile project to promote health and local goodness!

We are excited about partnering opportunities with organizations and individuals that are interested in Community Gardens. To reserve your spot and local food lunch, please call the Cooperative Extension office at 336.342.8230 or e-mail
