A caller on our Charlotte Talks radio show mentioned community gardens here in Charlotte. Here's some more information about that.
The gardens are offered by Parks and Rec, and 10x10 foot plots can be rented for $3 a month or $25 a year. They feature improved soil, and some have a water supply on site. There are a number of locations, including:
- Little Sugar Creek Greenway
- Baxter Street Park
- Huntingtowne Farms Park
- McAlpine Creek Community Park
- Ramsey Creek Park
- Reedy Creek Park
- Winget Park
