The Hollows Community Garden. Weather permitting, the event will be held outdoors.
Please follow NC masking and social distancing guidelines.
Our group originated in early December 2020 with the common goal of creating a community garden within our local neighborhoods. We are composed of members from surrounding neighborhoods. There are no fees to join. The Hollows Community Garden group is registered as a Raleigh Neighborhood Association and is bounded by the Eastgate subdivision.
To promote a healthier Raleigh through community gardening by growing and distributing sustainable produce on underutilized neighborhood green space and to foster community involvement through positive social interaction between neighbors.
We have identified former FEMA lots along Converse Drive, currently owned by the City of Raleigh, as the potential future site for our physical community garden. We are working with various City departments to fulfill our mission there to plant and distribute produce within the community.
Our Goals and Values
To promote native plants and vegetable gardening. Reduce environmental impacts by reducing storm water runoff. Embrace a sense of community and resource sharing through growing, educating, interacting, and distributing plants and produce.
Growing, Caring and Sharing
Find our group on NextDoor and on Facebook and to help us make the neighborhood a better place to thrive!
