2020 First Ward Creative Arts Academy Sense and Science Garden Clean Up

The Mecklenburg County Council of Boy Scouts of America selected the Sense and Science Garden at First Ward Creative Arts Academy as one of their locations for Operation Clean Sweep on Saturday, November 14. Scouts from Troop 107 along with their parents assisted in the cleanup of the garden.

The garden is a collaboration among First Ward Creative Arts Academy, the First Ward Neighbors Association, Inlivian, and Charlotte Center City Partners.  The garden has three major goals: 

  • Serving as a living learning lab for Academy students 
  • Helping produce healthy foods to address food insecurity issues within the community
  • Creating as community green space for intimate gatherings
