Welcome to the website for the Transplanting Traditions Community Farm!
We at the Orange Partnership for Young Children are happy to keep you in the loop about our program activities and updates, volunteer needs, and general organization and project information through this site and our regular posts. You will also find links to our community partners and other educational agricultural sites nationwide.
Please sign up for our newsletter in the sidebar to the right. You will receive monthly updates about events, what’s growing on the farm and much more. We are also a non-profit that relies on donors and the support of our community to continue to do the important work of Transplanting Traditions.
You can donate directly using the donate button on the sidebar on the right or contact Kelly Owensby at KOwensby@OrangeSmartStart.org (919) 967-9091 if you would like to discuss a donation or gift.
You can also check out our wish list if you are cleaning out your garage or are a business or corporation that can help with farm supplies. One of our biggest strengths is the support of our community and we thank you for your interest!
Mission and Vision
The Transplanting Traditions Community Farm envisions a world in which all people have access to healthy affordable food, land, education, satisfying work and a space to celebrate culture and to build strong resilient communities.
The Mission of Transplanting Traditions Community Farm is to provide refugee adults and youth access to land, healthy food and agricultural 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.
For more information about the project and who we serve follow the links under the ‘about’ tab above. We operate a CSA and have refugee farmers selling at the Chapel Hill Farmers’ Market and the Carrboro Farmers’ Market. We also have information and recipes for the south-east Asian vegetables we grow. We also provide refugee youth programming which includes a comprehensive teen program that focuses on leadership development and communication skills. Our young children’s programming focuses on farm and nature exploration, nutrition and cooking and physical activity.
