Cole’s College Garden is located in Cullowhee, North Carolina across from the Western Carolina University Campus. This original garden was made possible through the generosity of James Calderbank, who offered the use of his land to Cole to pursue his love of gardening and his desire to donate healthful food to those in need. This private garden has been dedicated to James Calderbank and remains fully operational under his guidance and chosen volunteers.

In May 2016, a dedicated group of Cole’s friends and volunteers got together for Spring Renewal and Planting. A special thanks to Tyler, Travis, Sam, Danielle, Ada, Benjamin, Haley, Ethan and Delante for their hard work and devotion. We are looking forward to our fall harvest!
