Grahamtown revitalization

The small community of Grahamtown is a community within a community - the traditional heart of the African American community in Rutherford County. Several world famous black Americans began their education in small black schools in the county from the end of the civil war to the end of segregation, not only in Rutherford County, but in thousands of small communities across the country.

On Wednesday, February 22nd, a conversation with Lee Cathcart about his efforts to reach children before they become too connected to technology, and get them outside where they can learn about the old ways of gardening and a good work ethic. Cathcart's Children's Equestrian Ministry is willing to travel anywhere to talk to groups and organizations about sustainable gardening and about making sure that the old ways don't get lost.
