A MORNING OF VOLUNTEERING
spend you're morning helping local gardens create good food
ALLIANCE MEDICAL MINISTRIES COMMUNITY GARDEN
101 Donald Ross Dr
9:30am - 12:00pm
Come dig in our garden! With nine rows and 20 boxes, there is always work to be done -- planting, weeding, watering, and harvesting! Our Community Garden presents the perfect opportunity for churches, companies, and families to get active and help us produce the fruits and vegetables that are given directly to our patients.
Alliance's Community Garden, built with the help of Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, benefits both Alliance patients and community partners who support the garden, including the Boys and Girls Club, local congregations, and area families. All fresh produce grown in our garden is handed directly to patients by their providers, along with a healthy recipe using those fruits and vegetables. Located on two acres adjacent to the AMM clinic at the intersection of New Bern Avenue and Donald Ross Drive, the garden is a productive use of the land and a highly visible reminder that healthy living begins with healthy eating.
