Experiment with aromatherapy by sampling Southern Candle's well being, tranquility, and common cold-curing and koala-charming eucalyptus blends.

Know Your Farms began in 2008 with a mission of building a more sustainable local food system for the Charlotte community. Since then, it's blossomed into a food-delivery service based off the principle of community-supported agriculture (CSA). Its members now pick up a box of fresh produce each week at a community location, taking home fresh, in-season ingredients from more than 30 area farms. Acting as a bridge between farmers and the community, Know Your Farms hosts an annual farm tour and runs a kids' summer camp, which teaches youngsters about cooking, nutrition, and gardening.
