We offer a multitude of programs in an effort to fulfill our mission. Below
is a brief summary of each of our programs, for more information please refer
to each program under the "programs" tab.
Our network is core to our mission, what we do and we couldn't do it without them.
Each garden is independently run by a Garden Leader that is supported by Friendship
Gardens. Each garden donates a portion of their produce to Friendship Trays
to deliver healthy food to over 1300 recipients of meals.
Through HomeGrown, Habitat homeowners are given a garden and support in the
form of a garden mentor, access to our monthly workshops, and the promise that
HomeGrown volunteers will return to replant one more season.
A recent study identified areas in Charlotte known as "Food Deserts"
which are regions of the city that lacks access to fresh produce. Currently
over 72,000 individuals reside in food deserts in the City of Charlotte. The
Mobile Market was launched to break down barriers to access to fresh vegetables for those residing in food deserts.
