Since its inception 12 years ago, the Conetoe Family Life Center has grown from one 11-acre garden plot to more than five large-scale sites, including one 25-acre plot. The mission of the Conetoe Family Life Center, led by Richard Joyner, is to get whole, healthy foods onto the tables of Conetoe’s families. Local residents register to receive Community Supported Agriculture boxes, but all produce is free at Conetoe Family Life Center gardens.
