Morrisville Community Garden

Morrisville Community Garden is an independent non-profit organization located in the heart of Morrisville near RTP, and convenient to parts of Durham, Cary and Raleigh.  Our website is mcgarden.us.  We plant communally, not in individual plots, but members are welcome to take primary responsibility for a portion.  At least 10% of our produce is donated to the community, the remainder is consumed by our members.  With a fair number of European-American and Asian-American members, you will find us growing crops such as artichokes and arugula, gai lan and heading mustard, snake gourd and sambar cucumber in addition to the usual fare.

Members may volunteer and harvest at any time, but the largest contingent comes on Saturday mornings.  We run special programs for children. We have monthly board meetings.  The best means of contacting us are by dropping by Saturday between 9 and 11 or through info@mcgarden.us,
