At the end of January 2023, HH Architecture provided the planning committee with detailed conceptual drawings of the exterior of the Farm, Food, and Family Education Center as well as the Livestock Arena located at the Training and Event Center. We get a glimpse of interior rooms such as the 4-H educational room combined with the Gardener Lab, and the Lobby area that will allow public access to N.C. Cooperative Extension, Randolph County Center and Randolph County Soil and Water. The 4-H room and Gardener Lab can function together as one large space or with the ability to be partitioned into separate classrooms.

Seeing this facility being “brought to life” has been a labor of love and we are all excited for the next steps in the process!
