Miracle Grounds Farm & Food Forest
The Food Forest
In 2019, the Twin City Garden Club provided generous support to create an experiential and educational food forest at the Miracle Grounds Farm. This project is central to how we involve and teach our kids about nature and food. We created the food forest with the elements of permaculture in mind. Our permanent beds are designed and built with supportive and sustainable ecosystems (plants that support each other). The food forest includes a meditation space, pollinator beds, edible bed, fruit trees and shrubs, and accessible paths that are open to the public.
Established in 2017, Miracle Grounds Farm sits on 100 acres at the center of Crossnore Communities for Children Winston-Salem campus. Volunteers work in the fields, planting and cultivating crops, and then participating in the harvest of each season. Children who live on campus at Crossnore Communities for Children have the opportunity to get their hands in the soil too and are especially proud of the produce they grow.
