Giving Back Gardengiving back logo

Once a vacant lot, the corner of Fisher and Greene is thriving as the Giving Back Garden. Each year, more than 1,500 to 2,000 pounds of produce from the garden go to nonprofits such as Share the Harvest, Mary’s House, Crop Caravan, One Step Further, Faith Action International, and StepUp Greensboro, feeding many in the community. To get involved, contact Joan Stone, jowosto@gmail.com or 336-273-1465, or Lee Atkinson, norwaync@triad.rr.com or 336-292-2325.
