CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
A Charlotte woman has been named one of the top 10 CNN Heroes for her efforts to change the world. The honor comes with $50,000. Robin Emmons' nonprofit group Sow Much Good operates a community garden on Sunset Road. Her goal is to make fresh produce easily accessible and more affordable for low-income families. She said they plan invest the cash prize into expanding the farm. "We have a lot of need in the way of equipment and infrastructure. We hope to hire some individuals here in the community so we plan to make the $50,000 go a very long way," Emmons said. Voting to name the CNN Hero of the year is open now.
