Since the spring of 2012, members of the Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. have participated in community gardening at the Simon’s Green Acres (“SGA”)/Enterprise Center garden site. After United Metropolitan Missionary Baptist Church (“UMMBC”) kindly allowed us to work in its plot during our first year, we ventured out to a plot of our own in 2013. We have been blessed and humbled to have had this opportunity for the past four years to plant, nurture, harvest, and distribute hundreds of pounds of food to hundreds of our fellow citizens. To date we have donated most of our fresh produce to the Food Banks at St. Benedict the Moor Catholic Church and Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Charlotte. We also made fresh produce and hundreds of packs of seeds available to youth and adult members of the community during several community and sorority-sponsored events. An added bonus to our time in the garden is the food, fun, and fellowship we enjoy sharing with our fellow gardeners, both returning friends from previous seasons and new-comers. Our monthly garden meetings/potlucks gives us the chance to discuss our common goals and issues specifically regarding our garden spot. This laid-back environment is the perfect place to unwind and grow friendships. The ladies of the Phi Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. look forward to continuing our service to the community through our community gardening efforts.
