CFLC gives children a voice in their community, their health, and their future. We believe it’s about so much more than a gardening effort; our unique program empowers children with the tools
they need to develop leadership abilities and social skills and stress management techniques.
Children learn science, math, organizational skills and financial
Planning, environmental stewardship, and a sense of commu
nity responsibility. Children are encouraged to stay in school and to help inspire their family members to change their eating, cooking and lifestyle habits. By caring for the soil and earth, their plants, bees, and
each other, the children at CFLC learn what it takes to be successful and how to be good community servants.
Summer Camp is a time in a youth’s life where friendships blossoms and imaginations begin. As teachers, interns, and partners of CFLC’s Summer Camp, we have the unique opportunity to collaborate and unite our efforts to provide an enriched curriculum that will bridge academic years for our campers.
This is a time where new adventures and genuine learning begin in the field of health, reading, math and agriculture technology. Our collective skills and commitment can build confident well-rounded experiences for our campers.
CFLC invites you to join forces and work in a partnership to pool our resources to create and enrich experiences for our Summer Campers!
This program is a formalized training and hand-on experience in agriculture production, technology, and business. This will be the first apprenticeship program in the entire state of North Carolina of this type, focused on developing minority farmers. Previous farming experience is not required but it’s important that the apprentice has a genuine interest and enthusiasm for sustainable agriculture production.
The apprentices will work with Rev. Richard Joyner of the Conetoe Family Life Center and other experienced mentors. Apprentices will receive over 1200 hours of paid, hands-on training in sustainable agriculture production on site at CFLC’s 25-acre farm. CFLC is partnering with NCA&T, and NC State to provide 100+ hours of technical and professional skills development from experts in the field.
