of Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation will host its inaugural “Garden 2 You” farmer’s market this Friday, May 27, 1-5 p.m. at Marion Diehl Recreation Center

Gardeners in the local community can also support this effort by selling produce at the market, or by donating items to be sold. All funds collected, whether from booth rentals or from sales, will go directly toward the Partners for Parks Foundation
to benefit the Therapeutic Recreation Summer Camp Scholarship Fund.
The market is the culmination of months of preparation, with cooperation between the Therapeutic Recreation Section, NC Cooperative Extension
, and the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Senior Center.
