"Can We Eat Here Everyday?"
In 2015, Apple Seeds found its home on 2-acres of land at Gulley Park in Fayetteville. The Teaching Farm was established at Gulley Park thanks to a collaboration with the City of Fayetteville to lease those 2 acres to Apple Seeds until the year 2035.
In just 2 short years Apple Seeds turned this field into a Teaching Farm and opened its gates to students in 2017. Home to a Teaching Kitchen, an orchard, production gardens and a variety of gardens, the Teaching Farm is a place for students to learn, cook, share healthy meals together, and be inspired to do the same in their kitchens.
Not a day goes by where we don’t hear the enthusiastic voices of students as they walk through the gates, explore the gardens, and delight in preparing garden fresh food together.
Once a woodshop, the Teaching Kitchen has everything our young students need to cook. You’ll find cooking stations, a commercial dishwasher, pantry, an outdoor cooking area and space enough for 30 students to chop, grate, sauté, bake and sit down to enjoy their meal together.
Open Garden Hours are Saturday mornings 9AM-12PM from March though October.
