North Carolina: Conetoe

North Carolina: Conetoe farming justice

As told through the Conetoe series, 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. “Good health is a time-consuming enterprise, and you have to make a decision as to whether you are going to work, sleep at night or grow vegetables in your backyard.”

This series in the “Faith & Justice” project is part of the BNG Storytelling Projects initiative. In “Faith & Justice,” we tell the stories of the people and organizations that are helping to bend the “arc of moral justice” toward justice and transforming communities.

This series is written by Blake Tommey. Photos are by Caitlin Penna. Videos are recorded and edited by Blake Tommey and Caitlin Penna.
