San Dar and Soe Myint arrived to the United States from Burma in 2009. In Burma, they had a big garden where they grew chin baung, flowers, cucumber, okra, chili peppers and gourds. They also sold watermelon and cabbage at a local market. Both San Dar and Soe Myint have incredible entrepreneurial spirits that have served them well in the United States! Not only were they able to buy a house with land to start their urban farming business, Yangon Garden, but they also formerly managed a sushi franchise. These two keep very busy, but are always up for a chat at the market on Saturdays. Come by Overland Park Farmer’s Market and see what project they’re dreaming up these days!
