The Mecklenburg County Fruit & Vegetable Coalition is hosting its 4th Annual Can You Dig It, Charlotte Community Garden Tour on Saturday, May 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at four diverse community locations. The event is FREE but the Coalition is requesting donations of garden supplies to be given to the gardens highlighted on the tour. Suggested donations include gardening gloves, shovels, seeds, garden hoses or whatever can be easily dropped off during the tour.
Participants and tour goers will be enlightened by success stories from gardeners while learning basic gardening skills such as soil preparation, composting and how to start a community garden.
After the tour, the Mecklenburg County Fruit & Vegetable Coalition will host a Garden Gathering with lunch provided by Encore Catering. After lunch the garden tour participants are welcome to attend the Green Teacher Network workshop held at Garinger High School. For more information log on to www.GTNCharlotte.org.
