Wake Tech’s Zebulon Community Garden provides a central focal point for students and the local community to work together and create something beneficial to both the school and the community.
The land tract is handicap accessible from the paved parking lot, and some of the beds are raised to ‘table height’ allow for accessibility of people with limited mobility. In addition, the land provides accessible gardening to all of our student population, and volunteer opportunities for community members.
The Zebulon Campus Community Gardens is a twenty foot by thirty foot fenced in area designed as a teaching gardens and a community project. The gardens features ten planting beds, a rain barrel and a small storage room complete with solar powered lighting. The garden has three six foot by six foot raised beds and 4 “handicapped height” four foot by eight foot raised beds. The handicapped height are designed so a person in a wheel chair or in need of a walker can work the earth. The fence is a three foot tall wire fence supported every ten feet. There is a gate made of a donated metal and composite porch railing that was donated to us. The rain barrel is a plastic barrel with a gravity fed hose attached to the bottom of the barrel. The storage shed is a weatherproof propylene two foot by three foot structure with solar panels on the roof used to supply power for lighting for the garden.
