New Roots Mint Harvest

On Thursday, August 11, farmers at the IRC New Roots Community Farm harvested over 30 pounds of mint for Earnest Eats (www.EarnestEats.com). 

Earnest Eats is a Solana Beach based company that makes healthy snack bars.  Mark Mandel, the co-founder of Earnest Eats,  is a long time supporter of the IRC.  To support refugee farmers and the IRC, Earnest Eats will create a new bar using the mint from the New Roots Community Farm.  The bar will be available in the winter. 

Thank you Earnest Eats!
