Community Farming Project

The Community Farming Project was created to help refugee families and individuals gain access to gardening spaces in order to grow and harvest their own food.  Gardening provides a vital supplement to their often income-restricted and nutritionally deficient diets.  In addition, this project provides a much welcomed opportunity for individuals to bond over traditional lifeways - as many lived in rural areas of Africa prior to resettlement and either grew up on or managed their own family farms.
