Visit the Farm

Dig in and help us keep the farm looking its very best! You can join us for a volunteer workday, schedule an educational visit, or guide yourself on a tour. We have events and workshops regularly where you can learn more about the farm and sustainable agriculture.

When you visit…

Please Don’t Pick Produce

Marked production spaces (including greenhouses) are a business for our farm partners and how they make their living.

Dog Policy

Leashed, well behaved four-legged friends are permitted on site, but are not allowed in production spaces.

Parking Suggestions

We encourage you to take an eco-friendly approach by walking and biking. Please refrain from parking in Person Street Plaza, since our neighboring businesses rely on these spaces. Street parking is available along Blount, Franklin, and Person Streets.

My favorite farm volunteer opportunity is Wine & Weeds, a Wednesday evening gathering of folks of different ages and gardening experience who come together to pull weeds, drink a little wine, and marvel at the productivity of this tiny slice of land in downtown Raleigh. Come join us! You’ll get a little dirty, have lots of fun, make new friends, and connect with nature in an unexpected spot. There’s also a recyclable cup of wine with your name on it.
