CHI Visits Community Garden in Conetoe, NC

On August 20, 2012, four Coastal Harvesters members visited the 17+ acre community garden run by 48 young people under the age of 18 and a handful of adult mentors in Conetoe, NC. Carol Bauer, Susan West, Shelby Kinnaird and Rick Kinnaird came away very inspired by the whole operation that feeds a community and teaches valuable life skills.

The Conetoe group will attend the Hatteras Island Day at the Docks celebration on September 14-15 to explore the possibility of a regular trade of produce for fish. If you attend Day at the Docks, please take the time to say hello to these remarkable kids.
