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.
