KOMU reporter (and friend) Emily Spain did an awesome piece on the Refugee Garden for their segment “KOMU 8 Goes Green.” Emily did a great job… even though it took us two weeks to finally find a refugee who could speak on camera (remember: as intended, most of our growers have very limited English skills).
If you have any free time and you are in the area, go check out the garden. You will see that a lot of vegetables have begun to come in. Also, you may learn a thing or two about different growing techniques.
The garden is located behind Broadway Christian Church at 2601 West Broadway. It’s the garden on the left and our refugees have plots #1-26, 35, 36, and 42-48.
