Collaboration is often the key to creating resiliency in a community. With few resources, collaboration can allow organizations to “double up,” avoiding redundancy of services, fostering a creative back-and-forth and allowing the transfer of institutional knowledge from one organization to another. In such a collaboration, the Guilford Urban Farming Initiative (GUFI), the recipient of a “Cultivate Resilient Communities” grant from the NCA Center for Communication, Community Collaboration and Change (CCCC) at UNCG, has been working with the New Hope Community Development Group (NHCDG) on maintaining and developing community farms in east Greensboro.
