Community Orchard at Faith CME Church

November 2 2019, 9:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Thanks to the generous support of Novant Health, TreesCharlotte is partnering with Mecklenburg County Health Department, Faith CME, and NC Cooperative Extension to plant fruit trees on the church’s campus.

The purpose of the initiative is to develop an urban orchard in an effort to increase access and consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables for residents in the Hidden Valley neighborhood of Mecklenburg County.  Fruit trees will be planted and harvested by Faith CME Church parishioners and residents of communities surrounding the church. Food will be distributed according to criteria which is still being developed. Ultimately, the program could be used as a template for other faith-based organizations to begin similar initiatives.

We love our volunteers, however, general volunteers are not needed for this event.  Please check the events calendar for other volunteer opportunities.

We are looking for TreeMasters to help with this event.

Sign-ups for this event are limited to TreeMasters.
