Welcome to GrowCharlotte.com

We believe that every community is centered around the supply and consumption of foods. Our vision is to create a public website that acts as a central location for people in the Charlotte area to learn more about where their food comes from, where it's available, and where they can find them.

We are continually working to develop the site's platform to support user profiles and business pages, host searchable listings for organizations that grow, buy and sell food within the Charlotte area. We will also be adding social networking capabilities along with interactive features such as media feeds, maps, and rating and feedback platforms. Having a central resource for community members to easily find and share information will assist in the growth of the local economy and foster a healthier community. Learn More
