Salvation Army “Community Garden”: Where Goodness Grows


Leaders of the Salvation Army in Goldsboro are reaching out to the local community in an effort to get more people involved in the work of the organization.

One of those outreach efforts is a “Community Garden” where fresh vegetables are grown thanks to the hard work of local citizens who come together and work together.


Project spokesperson Dennis Simms said, “The whole idea behind the ‘Community Garden’ is to reach out and it provides youth a positive outlet. We meet at the garden every Thursday afternoon at five o’clock to work in the garden, keep it up and to fellowship. We’ve had youth, adults and seniors show up—all are welcome. Our theme is basically about human development and sustainability.”

Simms emphasized, “Gardens are a great way to connect with our community and provide fresh vegetables.” Simms noted, “While we meet every Thursday, the garden is open seven days a week—Monday through Sunday for anyone who wants to come out.”


Leaders have organized a “Community Garden Fun Day” Saturday, June 25, from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the Salvation Army, 610 North William Street, Goldsboro.

Organizers are inviting local citizens to take part in a day of fun, eating and enjoying the vegetables of the “Community Garden”. There will be games, food and entertainment for the family fun day.


Leaders say this is the first year for the event.
