The area where The Wedge Garden sits was once upon time the foundation of a house. Which means, sometimes when we dig below 2 - 3 feet in some of the beds we hit concrete. Our goal is to build raised beds. If you have access to untreated wood, please let us know. Also, if you are a carpenter and can help build raised beds, we'd love your help!
There's concrete underneath this bed.
Discover — and help others discover — a world of wonder and inspiration as a Garden volunteer. As a volunteer at The Wedge Community Garden, you have unlimited opportunities to share your talents, explore new areas, and connect with people of all ages.
Live in the Cameron Park/Pullen Park/West Morgan neighborhoods and would like to become a member or volunteer with the The Wedge Community Garden? Find us on Facebook and join the Group.
We garden Saturday mornings somewhere from 9:00am to 12:00pm. If you are there, and no one else is, no worries, look around and pull out the weeds, check out the bulletin board, water the veggies, turn the compost pile. There's always something to do.

We kicked off our spring planting season on Service Raleigh Day on Saturday, March 23, 2013. Thank you to NCSU students, NCSU Cheerleaders, Kerry the Master Gardner, Danni, Ivo & Jessica's mom, the two guys from across the street for getting your knuckles dirty.
We also want to thank John Spiess from The Heritage Golf Club in Wake Forest for 20 bags of topsoil and 10 bags of soil! Thank you Kerry (Master Gardner) for driving down at 9am and taking back a truck load of dried greenery to burn. What a load off our backs!
Irregardless donated artisan bread; Market Imports for the four birds that were sanded and painted! Logan's Trading company provided gloves for all of us. Thank you, Sue, for the two dozen corn muffins. They are in our tummies.
Thank you Cheerleaders for inviting your friends and cousins to give us a helping hand and great cheer to end the day!
