The Irregardless Café was Raleigh’s first vegetarian restaurant and then evolved to the Local Foods movement, providing fresh-from-the-farm meals. They support eating “lower on the food chain.” The spring of 2012 saw the purchase of an urban garden three miles from the Cafe that has become the Well-Fed Community Garden. Hear how this 1.5 acre garden, on a main Raleigh thoroughfare, grows produce organically and follows sustainable agricultural practices, supplying the Cafe, its catering business, the garden’s volunteers and low income members of the surrounding community.
