SOUTH ESTES COMMUNITY GARDEN

At the Town of Chapel Hill’s South Estes public housing community, plans are underway to plant a community garden.

Volunteers are welcome to get involved in the effort to bring beauty to the neighborhood, provide healthy produce and bring people together.

Eva Bailey, a resident in the South Estes community, has been the project manager for the program for two years. Her vision is that the garden will bring the following benefits:

  • Beautify the neighborhood and generates more community pride and involvement.
  • Help people learn how to work together in a positive way.
  • Provide access to healthy food in an urban area.
  • Connect participants of all ages, backgrounds and abilities to each other, nature and the earth.

Volunteers are always needed! Please contact Town of Chapel Hill Public Housing Administrative Offices at 317 Caldwell Street or call 919-968-2850.
