The mission of the Little Sugar Creek Greenway Community Garden (LSCG) is to bring the residents of Mecklenburg County together to experience fun and fellowship while learning eco-friendly gardening methods and techniques. Classes are regularly held onsite to teach people various methods of eco-friendly gardening. These classes include sessions on composting, soil management, toxicity reduction and seed saving, fresh food harvesting, preparation and preservation.
This garden is an active Friendship Gardens network member, donating over 10% of its produce to Friendship Trays, the areas meals-on-wheels program. Because of this dedication to the public, LSCG is regularly recognized as “The People’s Garden” by the USDA and Keep America Beautiful, Inc
Little Sugar Creek Community Garden is a communal food-share garden with the belief that everyone should have access to fresh food regardless of income. Keeping strong to this belief, Little Sugar Creek has developed into a very successful collective gardening project that is open to any resident of Mecklenburg County. We are a very diverse group of growers and we work as a group to tend and harvest the garden.
The garden is a rich and growing part of the fabric of the Mecklenburg area. We have fostered partnerships with great agencies such as Hands on Charlotte, The Charlotte Bobcats, Civic by Design, Johnson & Wales University, Keep Mecklenburg Beautiful, Charlotte Green, Neighborhood Good Samaritan Center and the Community Culinary School of Charlotte.
With many talents present in the garden, Little Sugar Creek is able to provide its visitors and garden family a complete healthy lifestyle option.
