Next Meeting: TAProots is on
Our next meeting will be in late summer to taste tomatoes. Watch here for updates!
Holly Springs Food Cupboard Community Garden
621 West Holly Springs Road
Holly Springs, NC 27540
TAProots is a small group of clients affiliated with the Triangle Aphasia Project who meet regularly to sow seeds, garden, create garden crafts and fellowship together with a combined purpose to share their enjoyment of gardening and the outdoors. Although the group has a focus on gardening and garden projects, no prior hands-on gardening experience is needed.
The group spends time learning from each other, patiently working to communicate in a safe and caring environment while doing
fun and useful projects to use at home or provide to the community. The group routinely plants the seeds that start the vegetables in the community garden at the Holly Springs Food Cupboard. They also collect seeds for future plantings in the garden. Each year they organize and conduct a plant sale to support their efforts and to work toward their goal of their group's financial self-sufficiency!
Hands-on opportunities include learning to propagate plants for the Community Garden and the plant sale as well as the home garden and clients are encouraged to take plants home if they wish. The group also uses the herbs and plants from the community garden to create tastings or to take home for culinary purposes!
Join us. We welcome new members!

TAP Signature Event - Big News
Krystal Jackson was recognized for exemplifying the tenets of TAP!
For her determination, her spirit and her "can do" attitude, Krystal shines as the epitome of someone who perseveres to move forward in her life. We celebrate this recognition with her!
Laura, Rieppe, Rachel and Hope attended the Signature Event and were able to share in the joy of this award with Krystal and Nate. So fun!

What a great success! The plant sale was wonderful and we were able to present over $400 to the Holly springs food cupboard.
