Meet Your Farmer

Every year New Roots staff recuits new farmers to particpate in New Roots for Refugees. There are sixteen 1/4 acre plots on Juniper Garden’s Training Farm where 16 families grow. After four years of growing through New Roots, Cultivate and Catholic Charities staff help farmers connect with land and farming structures/equipment to continue growing on another site. The farmers below are currently apart of New Roots for Refugees and selling at 20 sites across KC metro, ranging from their first year in the New Roots program to their fourth year.
