WE ARE

IN THE COMMUNITY

Connecting is the first step to making real changes in our school gardens. When we connect teachers with available resources, kids are one step closer to understanding real food. Keep up with our social media efforts to stay in the know about upcoming events, current partner opportunities and active urban farms in and around Charlotte, NC.
