Caledonia Correctional Institution

NC Department of Public Safety

Halifax County’s Caledonia Correctional Institution continues to produce thousands of pounds of crops as the years go by. Lee Jenkins has more on the self- sufficient prison farm and the impact it’s had on the community.

Taking advantage of summer, men are planting, growing, harvesting and canning crops at Caledonia Correctional Institution in Halifax County.  This week on the Down East Journal, we hear about the prison’s agriculture program.  And, it’s an audio postcard from band camp.  The Down East Journal, Friday at noon on all of the PRE stations, and Saturday at noon on News and Ideas.
