Request for Leaves

Do you have piles and piles of leaves in your yard? If you are not sure what to do with the leaves you rake, Briggs Avenue Community Garden would like to have them!

It’s that time of year — Briggs Avenue Community Garden is taking/accepting donations of bagged leaves. We shred and compost the leaves to mulch in the garden, and we will gladly take them off your hands (for free!)

Please help us spread the word to all of your friends and neighbors — the leaves help us build the soils and prevent weeds from setting in this winter. This can be especially helpful to folks who don’t pay for yard waste pickup.

Load up your car and drop them off at the front entrance gate of Briggs Avenue Community Garden (the garden is across the street from East Coast Metal Distributing at 1313 South Briggs Avenue, Durham NC 27703.) You can pull up at the curb and drop the bags at the front entrance gate, outside the fence, any time day or night.

P.S. We do not/cannot accept other yard waste — JUST LEAVES! Sorry about that — no sticks, no grass clippings, no wood….
