Get Involved with the Duke Community Garden!

Share The Duke Community Garden is a student run-organization that seeks to improve campus sustainability by providing organic food to campus eateries.  The garden provides its members with a place to relax and enjoy nature, as well as an opportunity to enjoy fresh produce and an outlet for creativity. 

At the community garden, we are eager to accept both experienced and beginner gardeners! We are happy to involve expert gardeners in leadership and decision-making and to educate beginner gardeners in projects they are interested in.  We are hoping to engage more faculty and staff in the garden community and the joys of working with nature.

We will have numerous projects going on during the Spring semester.  We will have several construction projects, including making a hoop house, trellis, and drip irrigation system.  This is a great opportunity to learn how to make these systems!  We will also be building several new areas for crops, such as an asparagus bed and butterfly bush section.

We raise a considerable amount of produce in our main section of raised beds. The plants are regularly replaced with crops optimal for the season and climate.  Working in the garden will provide instruction in optimizing and tending crops.   Additionally, we are opening up several sections of land for independent landscaping and gardening projects. If you are interested in working on a section of land, please contact mmb21@duke.edu.
