The Camden Street Learning garden is more than a green space in the middle of a city.

It's where kids, families, and individuals can be in nature, connect with one another, and grow fruits and vegetables that nourish their lives. 

The garden is situated on one acre of land in downtown Raleigh and features twenty-two community beds, a 420 sq. ft. market garden, a food forest, a 6,000 gallon rainwater catchment system, two beehives, a green house, a vermi-compost bin, a composting facility and a kitchen classroom. It is a space that provides community members with the opportunity to cultivate new relationships as they find out where their food comes from, how to grow it, and how to turn it into healthy and affordable meals.

Growing Community

Camden Street Learning Garden offers twenty-two growing beds for community members to "adopt" for free to grow food for their families. Food Shuttle staff offer regular cooking and gardening workshops to provide participants and community members with more opportunities to gain self-sufficiency skills. The success of these individual gardens is not just measured in a bountiful harvest, but most importantly, in the growth of new relationships in our community.
