Well Fed Community Garden Background:

The Well Fed Community Garden is a 1.5 acre urban farm and community garden that supplies Raleigh’s Irregardless Cafe and community members with local food. The garden uses organic practices to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers in addition to providing a home to chickens. The front native flower pollinator garden contains a walking labyrinth. The Well Fed welcomes volunteers to learn through hands on experience and workshops about many different aspects of urban agriculture.
