Briggs Avenue Community Garden is a 45-acre forested lot located in East Durham, on S Briggs Avenue between E Lawson St. and Riddle Rd., across from East Coast Metal Distributors. Its purpose is to provide an urban garden for Durham families to affordably grow healthy food, learn about sustainable agriculture, conserve pollinators, build community, and increase food security. The Garden engages citizens of all ages providing free hands-on agriculture education, recreation, and fellowship in a low-stress, supportive environment. We seek to empower citizens with access to agriculture information and production. It is open to the public but seeks to attract resource-limited groups. The Garden was dedicated in 2010 as an agricultural education space.

Briggs Avenue Garden is managed by the N.C. Cooperative Extension of Durham County’s Food and Consumer Science Agent Cheralyn Berry with assistance from the Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Durham County.
