March 19th    Community Gardens - More than Just Food, Community Transformation

Shorlette Ammons, Community Food Systems Outreach Coordinator, N.C. Agricultural and Technical State University and Center for Environmental Farming Systems

Donna Phillips, Director, Wayne County Public Library, Goldsboro, NC


This webinar will highlight the role of community projects and programs, like community gardens, as tools for youth leadership and engagement as well as community transformation. We will define terminology in order to create a shared language around community transformation and highlight a few examples of the work that the Center for Environmental Farming Systems (CEFS) does in partnership with community and youth groups from around the state. We will also emphasize the opportunities that these projects and programs can create for all kinds of communities. The Wayne County Public Library Community Garden will serve as an example of an effort that has helped transform the community.

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
