Well Fed Community Garden

The Well Fed Community Garden is a demonstration garden sponsored by the Irregardless Cafe in southwest Raleigh, NC. The garden uses organic practices to grow vegetables, fruits, herbs and flowers in addition to providing a home to eight chickens and two beehives. The front yard contains a walking labyrinth and native flower pollinator gardens. The Irregardless Cafe purchases eighty percent of the produce grown by the garden while the remaining twenty percent is given back to the community.The WFCG welcomes volunteers two days a week to learn about intensive urban agriculture and share in the fruits of our labor.
