Description: The Carolina Community Farm & Garden is a successful student-run model based on permaculture, leadership development and business practices supported by Sustainable Carolina and the Green Quad. The growing success is contributed to the energy, vision and work of our students and support of our many partners. We aim to take students as dependent consumers and transform them into responsible producers by expanding their knowledge of sustainable agriculture practices, thereby improving their self-sufficiency and resiliency in a changing world. Our diverse and expanding selection of crops has been selected for the local environment and market. We produce seasonal fruits and vegetables in raised beds and in our small orchard.
