Our Gardens

Our Gardens

SEEDS gardens represent the potential in abandoned land. What was once a dumping ground has become a bountiful classroom for the youth involved in our programs.

Southside Garden

Southside Garden is a 1 1/2 acre sustainable urban garden filled with flowers, fruits, vegetables, artwork, community garden plots, compost bins and much more!  Created using principles of permaculture, sustainable agriculture and resource conservation, Southside is an evolving, living example of a productive, symbiotic ecosystem.  This garden is currently undergoing a 3 year redesign process in conjunction with our renovated building.

Exercise your green thumb, learn to compost, take a workshop or just enjoy our urban oasis by volunteering at Southside.  Organically grown starter plants, seedlings and propagated fruit trees are available for sale year round. 

Market Garden

The Market Garden is a beautiful model of youth empowerment and initiative.  This 1/4 acre urban farm is cultivated by the Durham Inner-City Gardeners (DIG) using organic and sustainable growing practices as they discover the connection between the earth, food, and community.

Garden of Eatin’

The Garden of Eatin’ was created by the public, for the public to enjoy and learn.  This community space, located in Durham Central Park, demonstrates the power of permaculture and diversity of growth our climate supports.

People can pick and taste the vegetables, herbs, fruits, nuts and medicinal plants that they know, or just sit under the cedar arbor and enjoy this beautiful space.

Landscapers and gardeners interested in participating in this project should contact Hilary (hnichols@seedsnc.org).
