CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - At the end of a dead end in the Belmont neighborhood in North Charlotte, there's a little gem that a lot of people don't know about.
The Little Sugar Creek community garden is a huge plot of land that bares the Noah's ark of fruits and vegetables.
Every single item came from a tiny seed but would have never succeeded without the help of the community.
"People are willing to come out to help to see things go to a good cause," says Nadine Ford with Mecklenburg County. Ford oversees the community garden program and spends of good bit of time in the garden herself.
She says 10-15 people come into the garden each week to help keep it clean, pull weeds, water, and pick vegetables. Sometimes passers-by come pick a heap of food to take home, and that's ok.
Anyone can work in it, anyone can eat from it. It's the concept that a community should help feed itself. Neighbors should help feed each other.
The garden is flourishing now after being in complete disarray in 2009. Ford says no toxic fertilizers or pesticides are used in growing the food. Compost bins on-site are home to worms and rich organic soil.
The idea doesn't just feed people, it brings them together and gives them a place to relax amongst a mountain of good food.
