The Intersection of Sustainable Farming and Decarceration [Podcast episode from The Takeaway at]


Produced by Deborah Goldstein; Hosted by Melissa V. Harris-Perry, Produced by GBH, PRX and WNYC Studios

Of the 52,000 farms in North Carolina, one farm stands out as doing more than growing produce and raising livestock.

Noran Sanford, Executive Director and Founder of GrowingChange, and youth leader Jaheim McRae join us to talk about the history of GrowingChange, its impact in North Carolina, and their plans for the future.
