This urban farm concept will expand access to healthy food options in Charlotte’s east side.

Aldersgate and Carolina Farm Trust have teamed up on that initiative, called Urban Farm at Aldersgate. Plans call for that 6.7-acre working farm to serve as a food source — and learning center — for the community.

Aldersgate operates a 231-acre continuing care
