New Roots Farming Program
The New Roots Farm program continues to grow! Recently, 22 farmers signed leases to farm 26 acres south of Phoenix. Ground preparation and planting will begin immediately. Look forward to enjoying fresh, local produce this summer at local markets.
Hickman’s Eggs has agreed to donate organic fertilizer to assist the new farmers. We would like to thank Hickman’s Eggs for their continued support of refugee agriculture! To find out more about local farmers and where to buy their produce, email Jon Vosper at Jon.Vosper@theIRC.org or call at (602) 433-2440 ext. 235.
