Gullah Geechee corridor up for public comment this month

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The management plan for the Gullah Geechee Cultural Heritage corridor will be up for public comment all this month.

The corridor reaches from southeastern North Carolina, stretching along the South Carolina coast and extends just beyond St. Augustine, Fla.

The culture is known as Gullah in the Carolinas and Geechee in Florida and Georgia.

It's based on farming, fishing, cooking, crafts and sweetgrass basket making, among other things.

The plan focuses on education, preservation of sites and developing economic opportunities.
