Hey all! So I know I have shared many things on gardening, but I wanted to share a project I have been working on and am very excited about. I have recently launched a community garden here in Charlotte, NC. I was volunteering with some folks one day who I found out through an off hand comment that they wanted a garden. They were saying that they had always wanted one, but didn’t know how to go about doing it. So after talking with them, I discovered they had 8 acres that they didn’t use!
So from these humble beginnings we have progressed a long way! We now have 20 gardeners, from all walks of life, religions, incomes, ethnicity etc. Of the food we grow, approximately 10% is donated to food banks. We have big plans for next year, but its been a great growing season so far. Check out the latest photos from our garden.
