Zack introduce Ashanti Selassie as the new farm manager of the Urban Farm at Aldersgate and is a farmer with vast experience in farming. They have had loads of dirt delivered today and will be transforming beds in the next 30-60 days. Additional sponsorships have been added to help with funding for the farm. They have planted 3,000 seeds with beds to be done in the next 45 days.
Volunteer opportunities will be available soon to help with the farm. A dozen or so beehives will be built to make honey to be sold at the farm with our name on it. They are joining forces the Catawba Riverkeepers to clean up the stream behind the farm, fixing the bridge so people from Aldersgate can have access and inviting school groups out to serve as a teaching tool. If you have any questions about gardening, help with soil or what you planted at the garden you can contact Ashanti at Ashanti@carolinafarmtrust.org.

My name is Ross. I am working with the Urban Farm at Aldersgate. We will be planting fruit trees on February 16th at 4101 Somerdale Ln. We welcome the community to help us plant the trees.
10 am Start time Bring shovel and or steel rake. 1/13/2019 Update on the Urban Farm at Aldersgate.
Weather permitting we will begin the demo process the week of January 28th.
The two cinder block buildings, concrete pads underneath, the internal fencing, light poles, and tennis courts will all be demolished and removed. We are leaving the pavilion for now and will get power connected in the near future. We also will be planting an orchard of Figs, Persimmons, Plums and get our first round of berry bushes on the hill in early Feb. Over the next few weeks you will see activity down on the farm as we clean up all the brush and dead trees. Our next round of fundraising will be dedicated to getting a Farm Manager on staff. In the mean time we will put in a cover crop where the tennis courts are and the area where the pool used to be. Once it warms up in March/April we will host a neighborhood event. I know there is continued concern around traffic. This will be a slow gradual process of building out the farm. We fully intend to be vested into Windsor Park and be a good neighbor. As things progress we will be very self aware of our impact and address concerns. Communication will always be open and welcomed. Please do not hesitate to call or email if you have questions or concerns. 704-264-6088, zack@carolinafarmtrust.org
Thank you,
Zack

America's Historical Documents
The history of the United States of America began long before the Colonists declared their independence. The Magna Carta, written in 1215 in order to try to convince King John of England to give the people certain rights, is generally considered to be the touchstone of liberty, upon which later documents are based.
The links below will take you to America's Historic Documents. These are the pieces of history upon which our nation was founded, and within which our current liberty is rooted.
If you have not read these or remember what they are, then you need to read.
