The Carolina Community Garden (formerly Carolina Campus Community Garden) is an engagement program of the North Carolina Botanical Garden. The CCG aims to grow vegetables and fruit so that all employees have access to fresh sustainably grown produce through the shared efforts of staff, students, faculty, and local residents and to serve as a learning community for developing gardening skills, healthy living, social responsibility, and interdisciplinary academic pursuits.
The CCG strives to interact with the University and the surrounding community. The garden hosts workshops and outreach events and also collaborates with many courses at UNC-Chapel Hill to connect students, the community and UNC’s low-wage workers.
We welcome all UNC staff, faculty, students and community members to help us grow vegetables and fruit for UNC’s lower wage workers. If you want to learn more about volunteering and what the garden does, check out our Volunteer Workdays and Frequently Asked Questions pages.
