Cache Owens completes her Master's Thesis

June 15, 2015

Cache Owens has successfully completed her Master's Thesis in Geography. The title: Black Farms Matter: Black Farmers, Community Organizing, and Farmland Preservation. 

This research contributes to a larger body of work aimed at highlighting the importance of black farmers. This project analyzed the spatial distribution of black farmers in North Carolina, and the local farmland preservation policies which impact them. Using both qualitative and quantitative methods this research concludes that community organizing is a viable tool to preserve black farms.

We are proud of her and wish her luck in all of her future endeavors. She will be difficult to replace on the CHARP team.
