Healthy Harvest

The Healthy Harvest committee in Root Causes addresses the intersection among gardening, fresh food, and health. Our two main projects are the Serenity Community Garden and the Sprout Kits Program.

Our garden originated in 2015 when the Change Center, an outreach of the Church of Philadelphia in the West End, tamed the wild grasses of the church backyard and planted the first generation of crops.

Walk-In Harvest Program

All visitors are welcome to harvest food from the garden for free, any time! Instructions and tools are available on-site. The harvest instructions booklet is located in the brochure holder on the fence by the entrance. Harvest materials are located in the black storage box by the black bench. If plants have a “Ready to Harvest” sign nearby, then they are fair game to take! Feel free to cut a bouquet of flowers too! Email Floey at fmz3@duke.edu with any questions.

We are incredibly grateful for any and all support to our Serenity Garden Fundraiser here. Any amount of money donated would go to buying seeds, soil, produce transplants, and expanding the garden as well as repair supplies including pest control stakes, planters, and crop irrigation. With your help, we hope to increase community outreach, therapeutic benefits, and crop yields at the Serenity Garden. Please consider donating what you are able. Any amount would be much appreciated!
