If you came out to Campus Y’s spring semester open house on January 25th, then Hope Gardens might have had the chance to talk you! The open house gave a glimpse into the multiple organizations at UNC that is connected to Campus Y, the university’s hub of social justice and innovation.
The packed crowd that came on Thursday shows the passion UNC students have for committing to make a difference, and we were happy to see that! One way to make a difference is by addressing the needs of the Chapel Hill area surrounding food insecurity. Hope Gardens approaches this issue using sustainable agriculture and tools to get the community involved in growing at our garden down on 2200 Homestead Rd. New members are always welcome to help further our mission. If you couldn’t get the details of what else Hope Gardens does, no problem! Come down to our weekly general body meetings at 1789 Ventures (next to Ye Olde Waffle Shoppe on Franklin St.) on Tuesdays 7:15-8:15 pm and come join a workday at the garden on Saturdays 10 am - 12 pm. Rides are provided at 9:45 am in front of Campus Y.
