New Roots for Refugees empowers families to start farm businesses growing produce according to organic standards.

For the past decade New Roots for Refugees has supported families from the refugee community in establishing their own farm businesses primarily selling through farmer’s markets, Farm Share, and wholesale to local restaurants. New Roots is a collaboration between Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas and Cultivate Kansas City.
  • Over the past ten years New Roots has helped refugees put over $1 million into their pockets through new farm businesses.
  • In the last decade, 29 families have graduated from New Roots for Refugees and 21 of them are still operating a farm business in Kansas City today. 
  • You can find New Roots farmers selling at a farmer’s market every day of the week across 16 farmer’s markets in the KC metro.
  • New Roots farmers offer Farm Share deliveries to local businesses across the metro.
