On June 1, 2012 the Charlotte in 2012 Convention Host Committee and Charlotte Community Health Clinic launched a community garden as a part of Charlotte Mayor Foxx’s “Healthy Children, Healthy Families” convention legacy program established to help ensure that the convention leaves a positive, lasting impact on the local region. The community garden will provide locally grown healthy food for the clinic’s patients and used as a tool for patients to learn more about their own health, live healthier lives and manage diseases like diabetes and heart disease. The Charlotte Community Health Clinic was established in 2000 and serves low-income, uninsured residents of Mecklenburg County.
