Visit the Walkertown Branch and you'll find more than books, DVD's, computers and other great library materials. You'll also find a community garden. The garden offers many opportunities to Walkertown residents not only to grow healthy, fresh vegetables but also to donate a portion of the harvest to local food banks and also to build community spirit.

There are twelve 4 x 8 raised garden beds. Some individuals choose to share a garden bed. Each group provides the labor for their garden space. As a group, we are happy to step up and help each other as needed. We may water our neighbor’s garden one day and they return the favor the next day and will assist when a fellow gardener is sick or on vacation. We grow squash, zucchini, cucumbers, okra, pole beans, bush beans, a variety of peppers and tomatoes, onions, herbs, watermelon, cantaloupe, carrots, and flowers. The bulk of the food harvested goes to the individuals tending each garden bed. We will donate at least 25% of the harvest to a local food bank (according to each family’s discretion).

Anyone can request a space in the Walkertown Library Community Garden. If you would like to be added to the waiting list please contact Natalia Tuchina. There is a $20 fee per year to cover water usage. The gardens are available for people to look at, but please be respectful and remember they are reserved for those renting the space for the current season and the produce is not available to others. If you are in need of food assistance please contact the Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest NC at 336-784-5770.
