ABOUT THE SERIES

The Sustainable Living Series, a program of N.C. Cooperative Extension in Mecklenburg County,  is designed for citizens who desire to increase knowledge of food literacy, gardening and food preparation skills through experiential learning. The integrated program is a collaboration of Mecklenburg Family and Consumer Sciences’ Local Foods program, Horticulture, and volunteers. For the past 7 years, the program has provided citizens with practical knowledge and sustainable practices to incorporate into their everyday life.

The series was awarded the Best of the Best Award by Charlotte Magazine for the “best way to learn a new skill”. From gardening to canning, the Sustainable Living Series connects families with nature, nutrition and sustainability in a practical and fun way!
