Transplanting Tradition Community Farm Youth Collaborative

The Transplanting Traditions Community Farm (TTC Farm) is a non-profit project of the Orange County Partnership for Young Children (OCPYC). OCPYC was established in 1993 and works collaboratively within the community to ensure that every child in Orange County arrives at school healthy and ready to succeed. In 2007 OCPYC initiated the Healthy Kids Campaign with the goal of engaging low-income families and youth in outdoor education and nutrition programming at three community garden sites in Carrboro, NC. The three Growing Healthy Kids Community Gardens paved the way for the Transplanting Traditions Community Farm, which was initiated in 2010 through funding from the Office of Refugee Resettlement. The Mission of Transplanting Traditions Community Farm is to provide refugee adults and youth access to land, healthy food, agricultural education and entrepreneurial opportunities. The farm provides a cultural community space for families to come together, build healthy communities and continue agricultural traditions in the Piedmont of N.C. Youth Program Goals: 1.) Increase educational opportunities, leadership development, job readiness, critical thinking and communication skills for refugee youth ages 13—19 2) increase nutrition and outdoor education opportunities for refugee youth ages 4—12. 3.) Encourage refugee youth to make positive change in their own communities, through engaging in projects based in cross-cultural understanding, food justice and agricultural marketing. 3.) Provide space and programming that helps further engage refugee youth with their culture, elders and the larger non-refugee community.
