Grist.org touts KCK’s New Roots for Refugees Farm

Grist.org, an online source that’s been “dishing out environmental news and commentary with a wry twist since 1999,” last Friday featured a novel urban farming idea that has taken root in Kansas City, Kansas.

The New Roots for Refugees Farm, near the Juniper Gardens public housing projects at 1980 North 2nd Street, is part urban agriculture, part Farm Business Development Program, Grist reports. The 14 women in the program are refugees, mostly from Africa and Asia.
