Embracing Natural Resources
Our region has a history of self-reliant living and independence. That approach to life has taken shape in the form of living off the land and having a garden that provided for not only your family but for those around you…your community.With such a bounty before us, it should be easy for at least half of the adults in Western North Carolina to eat the daily recommended amount of fruits/vegetables in a day. Unfortunately, the opposite is true. The CTG project wants to ensure that everyone has access to fresh fruits and vegetables through farmers markets and corner stores.
