Goler Community Garden is located at the Downtown Health Plaza, 1200 Martin Luther King, Jr Drive.

Our mission statement:

The Goler Community Garden at DHP brings together diverse groups of people without exception to foster health and nutrition. It will cultivate cooperation while providing a sustainable foundation for social interaction and a direct food source for local residents.

The garden consists of 22 raised beds which are cultivated in a natural, organic environment. The garden is maintained by a group of volunteers. The produce it for the patients of the Downtown Health Plaza and members of the surrounding community. All produce is either harvested by patients or volunteers who take it to the DHP for distribution.

The garden was begun in the summer of 2009 and the first planting was in September 2009. It was formed by a group of DHP physicians and staff as well as other community partners, including the FC Health Department. The 501 c3 in under the umbrella of the Goler Community Development Corporation. Currently was have about 100 active volunteers from physicians, medical center faculty and staff, DHP staff, Internal Medicine residents, medical students, patients, Winston Salem Junior League, Forsyth County Master Gardeners, Wake Forest Medical School guild, Evergreen Garden Club, and other individuals. Additionally we have had groups for one day volunteer service projects.

We have no idea how much produce is harvested because our garden is open to the patients and residents in the area, including several homeless shelters and day programs, who harvest on their own.

The Goler garden is open to any volunteers, however, all the produce will go to the patients.
