NCCGP is a volunteer-based grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the quantity, quality and sustainability of community gardens across North Carolina.
NCCGP’s new series of GROW (Gardeners Recreating Our World) workshops kicks off on Saturday, October 22, in Columbus, North Carolina. A second GROW workshop will be held October 29 in Lumberton.
Led by experienced trainers, GROW workshops bring community garden lessons based on experience to gardeners and garden supporters across the state. They are offered free of charge, thanks to generous support from Burt’s Bees and Resourceful Communities. Spaces are limited, however, and workshops fill up fast. Those who attend GROW workshops are eligible to apply for a grant to support a project in their garden.
Can’t make it to Columbus or Lumberton? Don’t worry! Three more GROW workshops will be offered early in 2017, in locations across the state.

NCCGP takes an inclusive view. For us, a community garden is any piece of land gardened by a group of people. Gardens come in all sizes and shapes, and are filled with a glorious diversity of crops and gardeners both. Community gardens are the new village green, creating healthier communities by increasing community involvement and interaction between neighbors, providing fresh fruits and vegetables, and increasing opportunities for physical activity. Gardens can save people money, increase green space in urban areas, serve as unique hands-on educational centers, and much more. In their simple, grassroots way, they are making a growing contribution to the local food movement, to food security, and to food justice.
