The Renaissance Community Co-op Is Owned By A Rich White Woman

No, I don't believe that but a lot of folks in East Greensboro do.

That's the rumor that was being spread by East Greensboro community leader, Reverend Gayland Oliver who maintains a business relationship with former Greensboro City Councilman Jim Key and is the founder of the community gardens project on Phillips Avenue in partnership with NC A&T University with 2 greenhouses already built and a third greenhouse planned.

Oliver knew better. He knows everyone involved with the founding of the RCC.

Could such lies have contributed to the downfall of the RCC which announced today it will be closing on January 25, 2019?

Have other local leaders, perhaps other local ministers also worked to turn people away from the RCC?

Why do those who lead us wish us to fail?

And why does the community keep covering for them?
