Simon's Green Acre Community Garden

THE MISSION

Empowering Winston-Salem residents (particularly those residing in the city's East and Southeast Wards - noted food deserts) with the resources and skills needed to grow their own healthy foods, increase access to fresh produce for all, and provide opportunities for education, relaxation, self-expression, and healing to improve physical, mental, and emotional health, from the inside out.

OUR VISION

We believe urban garden spaces can nourish more than just the body, and we hope to nourish the mind and the soul as well through our FREE monthly education programs (for the gardener and non-gardener alike), our on-site North Carolina native wildflower meadow and rest area our multi-purpose education space, and our community of dedicated, experienced, and friendly gardeners and partners.
