An all-volunteer Board of Directors leads the North Carolina Community Garden Partners, and serves as NCCGP’s governing body. It is a wonderful opportunity to advance the cause of community gardening throughout North Carolina. Members range widely, from extension, health and academic professionals to entrepreneurs to artists to rank-and-file community gardeners. They share in common a passion for community gardening, and find strength, creativity and friendship through their diversity. You will find the current Board listed below.
Consensus is the primary method of decision-making on the Board and at all levels of NCCGP governance.
If you’re interested in serving on our Board of Directors, please contact a board member. We invite you to join a growing organization and a fun group of people passionate about supporting community gardens in North Carolina. We need your ideas, your expertise, your time, and your passion to make our work even more successful and meaningful.
Serving on the Board is a non-paying, volunteer activity.
