Welcome to the Betty and Jim Holmes Food Bank Garden, Winston-Salem, NC








Thank you for visiting our blog.  We will try to give you updates on what is happening.  Our mission is to grow fresh, local food for our regional food bank, Second Harvest of Northwestern NC which includes 18 counties in northwest NC (from Burlington to Boone). With increasing poverty in our area due to the economy and severe loss of jobs, the food bank's needs have more than doubled in the past two years.

We know that fresh produce is the healthiest food there is. We want to make it available to people in need. We are an all volunteer operation. Through this blog we want to inform volunteers and interested persons about what we do. Please join us! The directions to our garden are at the bottom of the page. Tell us if you have questions or ideas. We'd love to hear from you.
