From the Ground Up


The volunteers, mentor, student leader, and family all in one picture with the finished garden!

This Victory Garden was created from a grassy yard and transformed into a productive and leafy space by committed volunteers. NC State students, a local family, and Haven House came together to make this great garden; it's been created with sheet mulch and compost, cinder blocks that were then painted, and plants that were lovingly put into the dirt underneath a home-made greenhouse! As a team, we managed to make the garden and greenhouse, put rubber mulch under the play-set, move some large rocks, and trim the hedges all in two hours!

This Victory Garden is chock-full of veggies for Liz Roberts and Aaron Muscle's family! Liz is a local pastor in Raleigh, right by NC State, and she responded with hope for community involvement and fresh food. Liz and Aaron have two children, Libby and Wesley, who were excited to pick out and grow "trees" (broccoli) and the tallest plants that we could find! Everyone was so excited for this project that we filled the garden bed full of donated plants, and then the cinder block holes on the border, and still had more plants!

Thank you, NC State & Haven House for your service!
