'Garden 2 You' Farmer's Market to Support Summer Camp Scholarship Fund
5/24/2011
The farmer's market is Friday, May 27, 1-5 p.m., at Marion Diehl Recreation Center.
Charlotte, NC – The Therapeutic Recreation Section 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, 2219 Tyvola Road.

This unique grower-to-table market will provide produce and plants grown by participants in TR’s Gifted Gardeners horticulture program. 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.

For information on renting a booth to sell produce at the market, contact Karen Howard at 704-432-4325.
