Video: “Garden helping refugees prosper,” a KSHB-TV41 News Report

KSHB-TV 41 News featured Burmese farming students Lin Lin and Tu Rah in a video report on May 5, 2016. The report highlighted the work and success of students in the program developed by New Roots for Refugees, a joint effort of Cultivate Kansas City and Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas.

Juniper Gardens Training Facility site manager Sammie Davis said “Everyone here grew in their home countries. Some had large farms, some speak that they had acres, 10 or 20 acres.” “It’s very hard work, but it’s love. If you don’t love it, it’s even harder. And loving it makes the hard work worth all the whole effort.”
