Thank you for your generosity supporting farmers in the New Roots for Refugees program.

All of the New Roots farmers are refugees, but they come from many countries. Since the program started several years ago, we’ve worked with refugees from Somalia, Burma, Burundi, Bhutan, and Sudan.  All of the farmers have arrived in the United States in the last 5 years or so. The New Roots for Refugees program provides an opportunity for farmers to build on their strengths and experience while learning English, growing vegetables, and earning income. In 2016 there will be 12 New Roots “graduates” growing on their own plots of land scattered around Kansas City, Kansas.
