How You Can Help
There are many ways to get involved with New Roots for Refugees, including volunteering! Whether you like to work outside or inside, weekly or monthly, on the farm or at a farmers market, there are a variety of ways you can support refugee farmers. We will be hosting a training for all new volunteers on Wednesday, April 27th at 6 PM.
