How to grow produce, eat local, community gardens
We are all about eating local...growing our own or purchasing from a nearby farmer. A surprisingly wide variety of food is grown in Mecklenburg and nearby counties. Learn here about home-growing your own Fruit Herbs Vegetables. Enjoy your sustainable garden harvests and Eat Local foods for top nutrition and health. Visit the Demonstration Gardens at Independence Park for an upclose look at a well-tended (mostly) edible garden. Interested in Community Gardens? find resources and the new NCSU handbook below.
