Our mission is to maintain a volunteer-operated community garden that provides fresh produce to local food relief agencies.
We have sturdy raised beds for this community garden as our site is on the foundation of the ruins of Pee Dee Mill #1 at Hitchcock Creek.
NCCGP is a project of the Come to the Table Program of the Rural Advancement Foundation International-USA. It is a volunteer-based grassroots non-profit organization dedicated to increasing the quantity, quality and sustainability of community gardens across North Carolina.
Community 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 healthy outdoor physical activity. Community gardens save money, increase green space in urban areas, serve as unique hands-on educational centers, and much more. In their simple grassroots way, community gardens are making a growing contribution to the local food movement, to food security, and to food justice.
