New Roots for Refugees
New Roots for Refugees is an incubator training farm program that empowers newly arrived refugees to start their own small farming businesses. Sixteen refugee farmers grow on individual quarter-acre plots, where they cultivate familiar ethnic vegetables as well as a wide variety of vegetables popular in the US. Refugee families remain in the program for four years, during which time they learn to adapt their farming and business skills to the climate and marketplace in Kansas City. These farmers sell their produce at farmers markets across the metro area, through CSA subscriptions, and occasionally to restaurants or other retailers.
