Meet Farm Manager David Goforth

David Goforth has served as the Share the Harvest Community Farm Manager since April 2016.

He’s been farming his whole life, and after attending North Carolina State University to earn his BS and Master of Horticultural Science has launched a successful career in education. David’s passion to educate our communities about local agriculture shows through his work as a teacher, extension agent and horticulture consultant for local farms. He also tends his own farm part time to produce fruit, vegetables and mushrooms for the community.

Now as the Farm Manager for the Cannon YMCA Share the Harvest Community Farm, David still pursues his passion for education through his management of volunteers, student groups and community members who visit and work on the farm. The YMCA is blessed to have such a knowledgeable, community-minded Farm Manager in David. Join David every Saturday morning at the Share the Harvest Community Farm to learn more about where food comes from and make a difference in your community!
