About

Thanks to our fantastic volunteers, the GCF Farm donated more than 130,000 pounds of fresh produce to the Inter-Faith Food Shuttle, Durham Open Table, Durham Urban Ministry and the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina in 2016. We could not have done it without the strong support and efforts of our volunteers.

As we expand our growing capability the commitment of volunteers continues to be important.The GCF Farm operates year round.

Volunteers assist with seeding, planting, cultivating, and harvesting in the greenhouse or on the fields. Everything we grow is donated.

The GCF Farm is located at 4902 Chin Page Road in Durham, just off Interstate 40 and Miami Boulevard beside our corporate office. It is easy to get to from anywhere in the Triangle.
