On 2 December 2017 The Charlotte Observer reported: Tim Belk always likes to have some kind of project to keep himself busy. ... It's on that 200-plus-acre property [his family's property in Chester, S.C.] that Belk, the former CEO of the Charlotte [North Carolina] department store chain that bears his family's name, is working on as his latest, albeit unexpected, project: Starting an organic farm.

Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the fields of environment and business, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
