CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - When Cissy Shull visited Philadelphia more than 20 years ago, and saw their community gardening program, she got an idea to do the same thing in Charlotte.
Now, Charlotte Green is responsible for 10 gardens in Charlotte's inner city neighborhoods.
Thursday, we visited the Belmont Community Garden which is home to 8 separate, small plots of space where neighbors farm their own vegetables.
We met Mae Bell Gordon, the Belmont Garden Manager, who jokingly confessed to sometimes grabbing others' okra when her own won't produce. The concept for any community garden is sharing. Neighbors who work the Belmont Garden often take their surplus vegetables to shut-ins in the neighborhood.
Shull says she's very proud of the network of community gardeners she's helped create.
"I think I'm the luckiest lady in Charlotte," said Shull.
And Gordon seems to think she's quite lucky too. "Cissy is my backbone," she says of the woman she met more than 20 years ago.
After watching the two work the garden together, it's obvious, the friendship will stand the test of time.
