Who is NCCGP?


North Carolina Community Garden Partners (NCCGP) is a nonprofit membership organization made of partners across the state interested in “growing” community gardens. Our mission is to increase the quantity, quality and sustainability of community gardens across North Carolina. We promote community gardening, support best practices, connect partners, provide education and share resources from the Great Smokies to the Outer Banks. Visit our list of partner organizations and gardens in our NC Garden Directory.


What are community gardens?


We take an inclusive view. For us, a community garden can be 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.
