North Carolina Community Garden Partners

NCCGP is a volunteer-based grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the quantity, quality and sustainability of community gardens across North Carolina.

What are community gardens?

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.
