New Roots are Growing in Charlottesville
On April 10, IRC staff and volunteers built 11 raised garden plots for refugee families in Charlottesville. Refugees from Burma, Bhutan, and Iraq are growing lettuce, mustard greens, radish, peas, okra, squash, tomato, eggplant, basil, pepper, and swiss chard.
We couldn’t have helped refugee families put down New Roots in Charlottesville without generous contributions from:
Blue Ridge Builder Supply
Southern Exposure Seed Exchange
Seeds of Change
Rivanna Garden Club
Charlottesville Parks and Recreation
