Camden Street Learning Garden

Volunteers team up to harvest several varieties of potatoes at the Camden Street Learning Garden in Raleigh, NC on June 19, 2020. The one-acre garden in the heart of Raleigh “is a space that provides community members with the opportunity to cultivate new relationships as they find out where their food comes from, how to grow it, and how to turn it into healthy and affordable meals”.
