Welcome to our gardening
community! Dunleith Community Garden is within the Charles B. Aycock
Neighborhood and part of the Aycock Neighborhood Association. The land
is independently owned and the owner has given permission for us to farm
as long as no permanent structures are built. If you are interested in
having a plot in the garden, volunteering your time to help care for the
garden or grounds, donating tools or materials, or sharing your garden
related photos, other media, or tales, please contact
firstname.lastname@example.org. Come visit often!!
Please support us!
You can support the garden with a
donation through the neighborhood association at
http://www.historicaycock.org/donations.htm. Donations are used to
provide seed and plants to garden members with fewer resources, and to
buy tools, cover crops, and signs.
To see more photos of the garden,
its gardeners, and the diverse community of people, plants, and wildlife
it supports, visit our Facebook page at
More about the garden…
Community is very important to us
in the Aycock Neighborhood. Please introduce yourself if you stop by
when gardeners are there. The front beds closest to the sidewalk are
full of perennial and annual flowers. When flowers are abundant, we hope
you will feel comfortable picking some to take home and enjoy or share
with loved ones—for many, picking them actually helps keep them flowering,
so we appreciate the help! The interior plots are all private—please do
not pick produce from any plots beyond the front flowerbeds. If you need
food, please let us know so we can share things that we know are
available. You can email us at
email@example.com or contact one of the
Aycock board members who can reach us.
The not-for-profit Urban
Harvest founded Dunleith Community Garden in 2009 with support from the
landowner, donations of some supplies, and volunteer labor from students
and community members. When Urban Harvest stepped down in 2011, garden
members took over management. The landowner, community members and
organizations, private companies, City of Greensboro, and NC Cooperative
Extension provide various types of support for the garden, which is a
beloved part of our neighborhor, visited by friends from near and far.
You may notice we have compost
piles. You are welcome to deposit your organic yard and household
compostable items like vegetable scraps, grass clippings, and leaves in
our compost bins. Just read the signs to be sure you find the right
spot. No trash please or meat, oils, or cheese! Plastic bags,
containers and plant tags cannot be composted and should be placed in
the appropriate trash can.
Some of us compost at home using
red wiggler worms. These are a special type of worm, well-suited to
compost bins. If you would like to start a worm bin for composting at
home, we would be happy to share some red wigglers. Email us at
We look forward to
seeing you in the garden!
