Holy Cross Catholic Church’s community garden is one of our outreach activities, growing food for distribution through Catholic Charities and providing parishioners and others an opportunity to grow food for their own households. Garden space (about 4 ft x 8 ft) can be “rented” for $25 for the season; all gardeners also help periodically with garden maintenance/weeding and harvesting. Most who ‘rent’ a spot have a raised bed but other options are available.

The garden provides a fresh supply of vegetables for Catholic Charities/Durham, as well as the gardeners and their families.
Participating households pay $25 per 4x8 plot. The funds help pay the cost of supplies.
