The Campus Garden

The Campus Garden is the result of student and faculty efforts to help Wake Forest students better understand and influence the social, environmental, biological and political consequences of food production and consumption. While we hope to eventually have the food grown at the Campus Garden enter the Wake Forest food chain, the project will serve many other purposes: provide Campus Kitchens with fresh produce; act as an outdoor classroom for Wake Forest students, as well as local elementary and high school students; and build community relationships among Wake Forest faculty, staff and students through work days and harvest celebrations. Maintaining and expanding the garden requires a lot of work. We are looking for volunteers to help in every aspect of the gardening process: preparing healthy soil; planting; managing pests; harvesting; composting; etc.

HOPE

Helping to Overcome Physical Expectations, or HOPE for short, is a volunteering liaison between dedicated Wake Forest students and students at The Children’s Center, The Special Children’s School, and Carter Vocational High School. Although each school is blessed with volunteers who perform many tasks, HOPE is a unique mentoring program aimed at directly promoting the academic, social, and emotional development of each child enlisted with the program. To accomplish this goal, each HOPE volunteer is partnered with a specific child at one of our partner special needs schools. HOPE volunteers then meet with their little buddies each week, assisting them to achieve certain goals and perform key objectives based on Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) which are personally prepared by the staff for each child.
